I wish we would have taken some pictures of our lunch. We stopped at Postino's, just north of Camelback. I'd never been there before. Melanie and I shared a plate of bruschetta. Delicious and photo worthy!
Finally, we could see North Mountain as we got near Dunlap. We could see the "S" on the Mountain near Sunnyslope HS, and North Mountain is right behind it. We realized we were going to make it after all. We walked from 7am until just after 2pm, which includes a few little stops to rest and a leisurely lunch hour. The weather was great - just a little too warm right at the end, but mostly perfect. Melanie got home, cleaned up and bounded out the door to go barbeque-ing with some friends. I, on the other hand, landed in a comfortable chair and rested my tired feet for a while. A long while. Actually, I'm still resting them.
