While SLC has been getting pounded by blizzards I have been down in Arizona. It was a balmy 75 degrees yesterday while we climbed. This is the closest climbing spot that I know of here in Phoenix. The unique Camelback Mountain sits in the middle of some suburbs making it an interesting landmark in the pancake flat city. Small volcanic hills protrude every so often on the horizon, but with any height gained the views sweep out for miles.

TJ and I just did the one route. The rock was an interesting blend of volcanic rock, granite, and had the color of sandstone.

Project beard is getting a little out of control. I still have another month...

We also made a point to visit some skate parks while we were here. I am still terrible, but it is so fun. We rode some really great parks. The Goodyear Park was my favorite.

Jeff is by far the best skateboarder of us all... This was our version of the Turkey Bowl.

The greatest part of the week was getting to spend time with my folks. We had some great food and a fun time just being together.

I am thankful for family, fun, and life.
