Arizona Week 78 - Mountain Pine

Hey Everyone,

This week was transfer week. Elder Jacobson and I are very excited to get to stay working together for another transfer! We are especially excited because we have a lot of good things happening in the area.

We taught the Krawczyk family this week. We should be getting a date picked for their son's baptism pretty soon. They are pretty neat.

We'll be taking Thomas to the Mesa Temple Christmas Lights tonight. We've taught him just about everything, so we'll be having a baptism set for him in the near future. 

We will also getting a new investigator tonight. She came to church a couple weeks ago with her neighbor. Her neighbor was baptized at the beginning of the year. Our investigator loved church but it was a little confusing to her, so she wants to know more. Fortunately for her, we can teach her more. J

This morning we got the workout of a life time. We got up at 5 AM and rode our bikes about 7.5 miles to Camelback Mountain, hiked the mountain, then rode back to our apartment. Our legs are very tired, but we had a lot of fun. It was just Elder Jacobson and me, so we really enjoyed ourselves.

This week will be good also, we have a lot planned and should be able to meet with a lot of people. We're getting a Christmas tree for our apartment today. We're full of all sorts of holiday cheer.

Here are some pictures from our hike:

 A sign that describes the trail very well.

A note from Elder Kirk's Mom from a website discussing Camelback Mountain: 

There are two well-marked trails that lead to the summit – Echo Canyon Summit Trail and Cholla Trail, which are open from sunrise to sunset.  On a cautionary note, both of these trails are marked double black diamond and therefore are not recommended for young children or those who are uncomfortable climbing exposed rock faces with potential drop.  On the hike you will gain 1200 feet in elevation, to arrive at the summit height of 2704 feet.

Have a great week!

Elder Kirk
