I spent Sunday night on Baldy Saddle in the Santa Rita mountains. Elevation was somewhere around 8800 feet. I’ve wanted to do a solo backpack trip for years now, but the opportunity never really presented itself until now. The trip went pretty well since I’m obviously alive and still blogging. I didn’t make it the last mile to Wrightson Peak because of some weather concerns I had on Monday morning, but otherwise I had a very good time.
My big news is that today I was offered and accepted a job at a local Tucson outdoor store called Summit Hut. I start right away (less than 9 hours from now), and hopefully I’ll remain employed there during my next few college years. It just might be the perfect job for me, although I admit that it is a little early to make that prediction.
The only other thing I was going to say is that today while my vehicle was in the shop getting an oil change and tire rotation, I went and saw a matinee of “Matrix Revolutions”. I thought it was a better movie than Reloaded and I feel like it completed the trilogy pretty well. Now, I’m just anxious to see the “Return of the King”.
