Pops near the top of Mt. Lemmon during his recent trip to Arizona.

Mount Lemmon, with a summit elevation of 9,159 feet (2,792 m), is the highest point in the Santa Catalina Mountains. It is located in the Coronado National Forest north of Tucson, Arizona, United States. Mount Lemmon was named for botanist Sara Plummer Lemmon, who trekked to the top of the mountain with her husband and E. O. Stratton, a local rancher, by horse and foot in 1881. It is reported that Mount Lemmon Ski Valley, on the mountain's northeastern side, receives 200 inches (508 cm) of snow annually.

Gary in Arizona....

Pops flew down to Arizona to visit some old college friends.  He's meeting with buddies Bill and Bob to explore all that our 48th state has to offer.  Arizona is the sixth largest and the 15th most populous of the 50 states.  Its capital and largest city is Phoenix.  Arizona is one of the Four Corners states.  It has borders with New MexicoUtahNevadaCalifornia, and Mexico, and one point in common with the southwestern corner of Colorado.  Arizona's border with Mexico is 389 miles (626 km) long, on the northern border of the Mexican states of Sonora and Baja California.  It will be interesting to see and hear what Gary thinks about this trip.  Wish him well as this is a big step moving forward in his life without Judee by his side.  As you might imagine she is still hugely missed by all of us.

Mark's Gravel Grinder - Blue Steel Bike

We sell a fair amount of this type of bicycle from many quality manufacturers so I had plenty to choose from.  However, I've seen some of the quality work Paul at Blue Steel Bike (check him out on FB) has been turning out recently so I asked him to build me a custom frame.  Here are some early shots of the work he's been doing.  I plan to christen the new machine with a 100 mile gravel ride as soon as we get it built....stay tuned!  (Going to have a showing of Paul's work Halloween Weekend...you and all your friends and family are invited!)
