Trekking on Tuesdays
TUESDAY HIKES WILL BE SUSPENDED STARTING NOW UNTIL SEPTEMBER OR UNTIL POSTED OTHERWISE
Ben is offering to lead informal hikes in the Anthem area. They would sometimes be exploratory in nature with the trails less defined. There would be no need to notify me of your intent to participate. Showing up with shoes, a water supply, a camera for recording images of great high desert vegetation or Hohokam ruins, and in possession of a need to know what lies just over the next hill is all that would be required. The meeting time is 8:00 AM Tuesdays. The meeting place is behind Freddy’s Steakburger located in Anthem Crossroads shopping center. Just use exit 227 from Interstate 17 northbound and head east to Freddy’s in the Anthem Crossroads shopping center. This exit is 15 miles north of Bell Road.
