Skipping the Super Bowl: hike

I know that football game happened but I don’t know who played. Today we are experiencing a subtropical moisture plume making Northern Arizona strangely overcast. We made vegan tacos for breakfast and then headed out into the mist. In Oak Creek Canyon I had a “therapy session” with my sweetheart, practicing jumping from rock to rock in the creek and pushing my limits – going beyond my comfort zone. I got to the point where I was showing off. On the way back north we stopped at a seasonal waterfall and icy little canyon in the pines.

Building the Taco: Corn tortilla, homemade beans, homemade guacamole, sweet potatoes, homemade salsa, vegan mayonnaise, chulula hot sauce.

First big snow of the season

Yesterday on the urban trail we had we nicest cross country ski with the snow still falling. Gathered up some mountain winter magic!

Tonight a friend had a winter gathering and made this flaming punch. Supposedly it’s a Charles Dickens recipe by way of esquire magazine. I know there’s everclear and rum and lemon juice and i imagine sugar but I didn’t get the recipe. I stuck to the apple cider, but it sure was pretty.
