Josh and Colleen came out to our bed & breakfast for breakfast (blueberry blintz souffle, sausage and fruit) on this fine Sunday morning.  After breakfast we drove an hour up to the top of Mt. Lemmon (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Lemmon).

The ride up the mountain was spectacular, with the road twisting and turning as we went from about 2,500 feet elevation to 9,000.  We stopped briefly in the general store at the top of the mountain by the ski resort to stock up on provisions (two different kinds of home-made fudge).  We hiked for almost 3 miles……we could definitely tell we were at 9,000 feet elevation as we were huffing and puffing up and down the mountain trail.

Here are a few photos to document the great day had by all!
