Capturing The Moment — One Big Squirrel!

Capturing The Moment — One Big Squirrel!

AMC Hike (1 of 1)-16 b framed

Big Rodent (1 of 1) b framedRock Squirrel — Image by kenne

George Schott (co-leader) & Linda Moraski (leader)

On April 6th, The Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) began a week of hiking in the Tucson area. The first hike started in Catalina State Park, following the Romero Pool Trail in the Push Ridge area of the Catalina mountains. Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists, Tim Ralph and myself, along with Mike Harris, lead guide in the Southern Arizona Hiking Club, shared the roles of hosts and guides for the hiking group from the east.  The AMC Adventure Travel group of sixteen was under the leadership of Linda Moraski (leader) and George Schott (co-leader).

Additional postings of the AMC time in Tucson will take place over the next week.
