Time to summit: 26 minutes
About this hike: No records beat, but despite higher temps, the humidity was a lot lower too. There was a nice breeze, and by the end of my hike it had ushered in an unwelcome dust storm from the south. I contemplated waiting it out at the base of the mountain, but opted to drive home and take my chances. Gratefully, as awful as this one looked, it never really amounted to much.
