The family and I started 2016 with a trip south to escape the freezing temps and the foot + of snow that fell in Durango over Christmas Break. We headed to Scottsdale, Arizona to meet up with one of my oldest friends Dave and his family. While there we did some golfing, got in some mountain biking, ate at a Maryland Crab House, rode go carts, and relaxed by the pool amongst other things. Tracy and I rode some great trails in the McDowell Preserve from the Browns Ranch Trail Head. The weather was great, sunny and temps in the upper 60’s. We definitely decided we want to take a few more trips south this winter.
