Summer Hiking Season On Mt. Lemmon   2 comments

Old Ski Run Hike-5-72The SCVN Friday Hikes began this past Friday (June 7th) with a short hike up to the old ski run.
Ricki Mensching loves leading this hike each year
and the opportunity to share some the history of the original ski run on Mt. Lemmon.

Campers had left the camp fire without making sure the fire was out. Sadly, this kind of happening is not unusual.
We call 911 and the nearby Summer Haven fire department came and extinguished the fire.

On this same day a very large uncontained forest fire began burning in the Tonto National Forest northeast of Phoenix.
This marks the beginning of the fire season in Arizona, most all of which are man-made.

before continuing the hike to the top of the ski run.
