“Upward and Onward” — Image by kenne

The Sabino Canyon Volunteer Nationalists (SCVN) lead the first Friday summer hike on Mount Lemmon yesterday. The schedule will every Friday through August 31st. You can get the complete schedule by going to http://sabinonaturalists

Yesterday’s hike on Butterfly #16 and Incinerator #18A to Leopold Point. This hike is one of my favorites and one of the few that Joy and I have hikes together. If you click here to see my blog posting on our hike a year ago. If you watch the video, you can see why Joy doesn’t hike with me anymore.

There were about 18 people in yesterday’s SCVN hike. While yesterday’s temperature hit a record 107 degrees, the temperature on the mountain was in the upper 70’s, which is way we spend the summer hiking on Mount Lemmon. A slideshow of my photographs can also be seen on my Flickr account, http://www.flickr.com/photos/kennetu/sets/72157630015836120/show/

  1. Love the temperature drop when you move up to higher elevations in the summer. Thankfully we won’t see near as many 107 degree days in LA as you see, but I like to head to the mountains on hot summer days.

    In a few weeks, we will again be hiking to Leopold Point. This is a hike the SCVN guides lead every summer. This is a posting from five years ago. Enjoy. — kenne
