The lovely Arizona winter is fading and summer is upon us again all too quickly. But before it got too hot, Chris and I took advantage of the great outdoors one last time with our good friends Jen and Dan. Our destination--the Salt River. Our original plan was to hike down to the Salt River dam... whichwe never found. However, the water was was low enough that we were able to hop rocks across the length of the river and poke around the cliffs on the other side. It was a most enjoyable morning until we returned to the city for a second lunch (most essential) and ended up recklessly loosing Snoopy in downtown Mesa. However, we have restored faith in our neighborhood. Everyone was pitching in to help us find our little beagle. Eventually we found him in an 85 year-olds back yard. Somehow she miraculously caught Mr. Mischief and was hanging onto him in hopes of being able to contact the owners.
