It is the perfect time of year for hiking in Arizona. It goes by quickly, so we take full advantage while the weather lasts! Yesterday was President's day. Being that Alexis is a teacher, she got the day off from her 8th graders. Woo! We hit the trail!
The Hawe's Loop trail is perfect for all ages. It is a 6.2 mile trail (rated as moderate), but you are absolutely able to make it as short as you would like! There are bike trails for the more experienced, as well as simple trails for both young and old alike. We highly recommend checking it out if you're ever in the area. It is on the East Side of Mesa, -map linked at bottom of page- closer to Ash's home. Ironically, she had never been! The weather was absolutely intoxicating. After heavy rain the prior two days, the landscape was luscious and the skies were a stark blue. Just gorgeous.
REMEMBER: hydration is key, year round.
Often times, people do not think of drinking water until their body is already dehydrated. We carry our Hydroflask bottles everywhere we go and find ourselves drinking water constantly, which helps your skin, your digestion, your body temperature. Its just an all around good idea. Moral of the story, drink more water!! We love our Hydroflask bottles. They keep cold for 24 hours, and hot for 6 hours. We have tested this theory. In the dead of an Arizona summer, temperatures can reach 110+. We have left our canisters both outside and in hot cars, oops. We can't say either was on purpose. We were amazed to find that although the outside of the bottle was essentially too hot to touch, you could grab the loop on the lid and still take a drink of ice cold water. Eureka! This science put into the engineering of these is simply genius.
They come in a variety of colors, and are also customizable! All members of our family even have them including coffee mugs and even the 64 oz! Its good stuff, we promise!
Ash's white Hydroflask is a 32oz wide mouth, perfect size without being too heavy when full! $44.95
Alexis' orange Hydroflask is a 40oz wide mouth, it is taller & has a smaller width. This makes it fit in most cup holders! $47.95

Its about balance.
We are all about a healthy but balanced lifestyle. No extremes here. Lets be real, we really love french fries and tacos.
