...and the Ballantine Trail - reason enough to take up hiking. Places that look as beautiful as this, or even nicer, are why I go hiking when I get the chance. Besides that, I may lose a few pounds while at it. This shot was taken last weekend on a hike north of Phoenix. I only hiked 3 miles that day but it was awesome nonetheless. You just gotta love places that look like this - tha is as long as you have enough water with you. Mine is in my pack all the way to the left side in the photo as you look at it.
