High Desert Trekking Courtesy of Deb

Deb had to travel to Arizona for work and decided to go for a little hike in the high desert. Not only did this give her the opportunity to get some hill work in (as compared to her standard training in the relatively flat state of Iowa), but she was able to closely simulate the dry, arid terrain that we’ll be experiencing in Nepal… albeit without the colder temperatures or the chance encounter with an angry yak! During her 4 mile hike she gained over 1,000 feet and had an opportunity to test out her trekking poles and put some more miles on her hiking boots.
