Friday Fitness Hike

Linda, Lisa, Shawn, and I hiked 4.8 miles starting from the Tom’s Thumb Trailhead. Our total elevation gain for the day was nearly 1700 feet.

This is Shawn, Lisa, and Linda at the start of the hike. This photo provides a good view of the ridge – just over their heads in this photo – that we hiked towards, and then past, Tom’s Thumb.

Light rain over Pinnacle Peak and Troon Mountain. The rain eventually made it over to us. The rain was not especially heavy, but the winds were strong, especially during our hike along the ridge as we approached Tom’s Thumb.
