USMC at the Canyon

Today we saw a group of US Marine Corps Reservists finishing a 7.4 mile hike in Sabino Canyon. Notice how they're dressed...in the middle of summer...in the desert! That's what I call intensive training.

Hi Diane,
And it's an impressive site, seeing them come marching in here. Especially so given the duration and temp!

Diane AZ: Nice photos of the Marines Marching. A lot of toil & sweat - thats what makes them tough.
