From the beginning of the year, Mr. Ernesto Somoza, who is a CTE teacher, has started a new hiking club that meets monthly for Pueblo students who want to explore the Arizona mountain ranges.
This club consists of 15 Pueblo students, Somoza said. Their first meeting was on Sept. 2, when they discussed their first hike to Tumomac Hill. The club meets on the first Thursday of each month to discuss their next hike, and on the third Saturday of each month, the actual hike takes place, normally at 8 a.m. Transportation is provided, and each hike takes about 1-2 hours.
President Luis Molina, a senior, encourages students to join because “it’s a lot of fun, and the more the merrier.”
“The purpose of this club is to gain appreciation for nature and to interact with one another,” said Somoza.
As the year goes on, Somoza explained that the hikes will eventually become more complex. Some of the hikes include Sabino Canyon and Picacho Peak.
Everyone is encouraged to join this club, and if you want monthly reminders, text: @hikepueblo to 81010; also listen for reminders on Warrior Radio.
