7 Falls--The Destination NOT the Safety Record
EE's Hikers head out to a "not for the faint-hearted" hike
in Sabino Canyon today.
A $3 tram ride takes hikers to the Seven Falls trailhead.
Traversing numerous water crossings and steep, rocky
drop-offs for a 5 mile, 1100 foot elevation gain hike should
bring most hikers out of the wilderness in time for a late
lunch at McGraws. The $6 carfare does not include any rescue
helicopter services needed.
Monday, March 31, will see surviving EE
hikers trudging up and down (and up and down and up and down
and....) the hills of the Brown Mountain Trail in the Tucson
Mountains. Plan on 4 miles with an 800 foot elevation
gain. Carfare is $5. Is a detour to Tiny's in the picture?
Water!!!!! Snacks for energy!!!! Poles for safety!!! Surely
we need not repeat ourselves.
EE's Annual Drive-in Movie Night
March 26, the driveway of Donna and Terry Shay's
house on Circulo del Sur is
transformed into a drive-in movie theater. Bring your folding
chairs or golf carts and drive up to see Gravity,
a science fiction thriller starring Sandra Bullock.
Help Beautify the "Gateway to Esperanza"
Tired of driving by the barren median on Esperanza Blvd?
Here's your chance to help enhance the area. Median Green has
developed a detailed plan of plants and boulders to improve the
area (view the plan on the Ramada bulletin board) and the
Enhancement Team has donated $800 towards the effort. EE is
looking for a volunteer to co-ordinate the project, as well as
volunteers to help plant and maintain the area, and donations to
fully fund the project.
If you are willing to head up a team of volunteers to implement
the plan, contact Barb
867-8067. Also let Barb know if you would be interested in
working on the project or making a donation. You can read more
about the project in the March issue of the Periodico.
It's Water -- Cool, Clear, Water
Hank Williams may not have had the EE pool area in mind when
he sang those words, but thanks to the Enhancement Team and Tom
Cooke, you'll be able to pour a refreshing glass of
water or get ice for your beverage while you bask in the sun.
The Enhancement Team donated a refrigerator from the Ramada
sale, and Tom made some necessary repairs to the in-the-door
water and ice dispenser.
