Mt. Lemmon

Day three of training camp brought yet another swim, a ride up Mt. Lemmon, and a run!  25 miles of climbing bliss.  (Yes, I know this happened well over a week ago but hey, I've been sick!!) Here it is in pictures:
Getting ready for our morning swim

The approach to Mt. Lemmon.  This was the last we saw of Angela !
The only time I was in front all day!
Leaving the cacti behind
Hello pine trees!

Yes, another picture of Sonja....up, up, up we go!

Ah, the views

That's Madera Canyon in the distance
So happy to be riding outside!

After 25 miles of climbing, we ended up in Cookieville, errr, Sommerville.  We had heard they had cookies the size of your head.  Mmmmmmmm!

I have seen many a picture of these cookies in the last week or so. Seems like everyone in triathlon has been up Lemmon and had one of these famous cookies. Glad you had a great time, bummer you got sick upon returning home. :( Hope you're better!

That is one HUGE cookie! Looks like it is a peanut butter cookie? The pictures on the bike are great! Except for the fact it looks like you had quite a bit of hill climbing to tackle. The training camp looked really cool! Hope you had a great time with it all :)
