Weather: 88°, sunny
Time to summit: 31 minutes
About this hike: Today wasn't too crowded and parking was easy to come by. It's record-breaking heat for February, but not enough to stop we die-hards (and plenty of tourists judging from today's crowd).
Despite the heat I made the summit in near record time. I'm almost in the 30 Minutes & Under Club!! Valley air was relatively clear today and the distant mountains were beautiful. A PHX PD chopper was circling the summit and of course people were waving. Was a nice unexpected bonus of an afternoon hike.
