On Oct. 25, a small group of SaddleBrooke Ranch hikers got together with the encouragement of Carmen Allen. After carpooling to Oracle State Park, ten wanderers took in 3 and a half miles of gentle trails. It was great to meet new folks and share stories. The cool fall weather was perfect and the blue Arizona skies set a perfect backdrop. We are all hoping for more pleasant walks this season. For now, the group will continue to use ‘Next Door’ to help bring interested day hikers together!
