Back by popular demand...the Fall Challenge has returned! Last year we challenged you to hike 100-miles in three months and you rose to the challenge.

This year, you’ll be asked to solve puzzles, participate in activities, and truly experience the beauty of the Sonoran desert. So round up your friends, print out your bingo cards and prepare for a fun fall of outings.
