Basking in the Sun

Phil and I were lucky enough to leave Denver last Thursday where the temperature at take-off was about 10 degrees below zero – and head to Phoenix for a long weekend to visit his family. The temperature when we landed was about 68 degrees. Yeah baby!

In the front yard at Casa Kriz.

In addition to some great family time (Phil’s 2 sisters both live in the Phoenix area and his parents are wintering there) we snuck in some mountain bike rides – in shorts!! We actually needed sunscreen!! I’m doing the happy dance in my chair right now just thinking about it . . .

Phil’s parents live near two great mountain bike areas – Usery Mountain Park  and the Hawes Trail system.

My Pivot Mach 4 demo bike - sweet! I'm not too into the whole pink bike thing, but that little baby rides like a dream. I'm very seriously considering that model . . . in anodized black.

A neighbor of Phil’s sister Marla is an avid mountain bike rider and he not only printed maps and outlined the rides for us, he loaned Phil a bike and graciously rode with us on Saturday, though he could have had a much faster ride without us desert newbies tagging along.

Thanks Todd!
All in all, a great little get away during this cold and icy Colorado winter.
