Dr. K, Becca and I are out visiting Tim and Fran (my brother and sister-in-law) in Glendale, Arizona.  This morning the three of us went for an early hike in Thunderbird Conservation Park, which is almost surrounded by the city.  It's a beautiful urban park, but like all urban parks in large metro areas it is heavily used.  We'll go there tomorrow, too, but it's sure to be even more crowded on the weekend.
