I am sorry to all who did not see the original post for this weeks blog. I lost everything except the pictures so I will give a brief description since my notes are gone.
The kick off this week was the Cowboy Days and O’Odham Tash.
There was a parade in downtown Casa Grande that had bands, Native Americans, Cowboys, royalty and entertainment.
The O’Odham Tash is where different tribes come together for music, dance and socialization.
A small clip of the dancing and music.
Onto the Rodeo. My first Rodeo and it certainly did not disappoint.
This is Picacho Peak. 3,374 feet in elevation.
Left Tracy at 1.25 and will go the rest alone.
I finally leave the moderate hike for the more difficult part of the hike, the peak.
At the top after a lot of stops to catch my breath.
Pretty steep from where I stand.
