My younger brother, who I still see as a sporty twelve year old from way back when, but is actually a grown man of twenty-six these, came to visit me in the desert. His goal was to escape the cold Boston winter and spend some time with his favorite (albeit only) sister.
First on the itinerary? My favorite mountains in the area: Camelback and Usery.
In Camelback, he hiked all the way to the top, which neither Carolina nor I have done yet. The steep rock climbing portion did not deter him. Caro and I passed on that challenge and waited for him on a big rock as we discussed life, men and other important matters. In Usery, he made it farther than we ever have (though we've since reached the top!) Mind you, my brother has also completed the Boston Marathon, so these hikes don't pose much of a challenge for him, though he claimed to be exhausted in the end to make us feel better...:-)
