About this hike: Considering the cooler weather and the fact that I never stopped for a rest break, this time was a disappointment. Mountain was a little crowded, but not so gridlocked you couldn't keep moving. After missing the past two Saturdays--although I enjoyed some amazing hikes/climbs in Sedona & Grand Canyon--it felt good to get back to my old stomping grounds today.
