BEST CREATIVE WAY TO TAKE A HIKE - 2007
Maricopa County Parks & Recreation-sponsored hikes
But it's hard to take the TV on a hike, and our snack bag gets heavy, which is why were delighted to learn about Maricopa County's hike series, put on at parks including Estrella, Usery Park, and McDowell Mountain.
But this isn't your typical Sierra Club-style hike. There was the Elvis Memorial Hike (prizes to people and dogs dressed like the King), the Snake Feeding hike, and even a hike devoted to scat, where a ranger taught participants to identify different kinds of animal feces. (No shit.) That one's definite motivation to leave the iPod at home you wouldn't want to miss a word of that tour and step in the wrong place!
