Busy at New Echo Canyon

Weather:  75°, sunny

Time to summit:  34 minutes

About this hike:  Parking was a mess today!! I hoped the new lot would mitigate this.  However, a rescue was in progress when I arrived, and cars were queuing along McDonald and wrapping onto Tatum.  Police were allowing this.  I've learned of a secret parking area nearby (not to be divulged!) so I left Jake there and walked.  Walkups were apparently OK even as the rescue was in progress, just no influx of vehicles.

Still taking it easy on the wrist, but I think the rescue's impact on crowds helped me make the summit just a little quicker.
