There’s water in Tucson!!! Amazing!

If you’re from southern Arizona, you understand how DRY it is.  If you’re from Arizona, you also don’t always associate bridges with water but that’s another story…  Anyway, we got our feet wet at Romero Pools this weekend!

Romero Pools
To start our hike, we had to cross a few streams.

Romero Pools
We had no problems but one of the horses did! The woman’s horse was scared to cross!

The guys at the start.

Romero Pools
A really varied landscape: sand, cacti, water & mountains!

Romero Pools
After crossing the streams, we trekked on a sandy road.

Romero Pools
Then things started to get rocky.

Romero Pools
Leonids!

Romero Pools
I think I was supposed to be serious in here!

After what seemed like an excessive uphill battle, we started winding downwards… then up again, then down again and after miles of panting & feeling the burn in my thighs… finally….

Romero Pools
WATER!!

Romero Pools
We had to do a bit off shimmy-ing down rocks to get to the other side of the pools.

Fiance precariously wading his way through the frigid waters –run off from the mountain snow. Yeah, it snows in Tucson.

Romero Pools
He made it!

So we each took our turns climbing down & crossing to the other side.

Relaxing after a hot & somewhat strenuous hike.

Burger Romero Pools
As soon as we made it across, Elu, the genius that he is, decided to get in touch with nature & eat 2 burgers from Burger King that he had stashed away in his pack.

Getting in touch with nature.  =P

All this water is probably the main source of Tucson’s water supply. That’s why the tap water tastes like feet & feces. We had our grubby feet all over the water & the feces…. That’s another story. Just kidding!!!

We laid around for a bit enjoying the scenery.  Some of us actually braved the odd colored water & went swimming.  Personally, the water was a little too cold & yellow for me.

The hike back is always the hardest when it’s a long hike.

Trying to find a better crossing.

If you fall off a cliff, there are cacti to break your fall…
