Weather: 78°, sunny, breeze
Time to summit: Not Taken
About this hike: Took a friend on a first-time tour of Camelback so today wasn't a time trial to the summit. That said, it was a nice warm day out and we had a great time. I always like to introduce (worthy) others to my favorite little zen spot in the Valley.
Parking was awful today. As usual, the cops and park rangers stood around chatting and not moving the "Lot Full" sign, even as cars were driving out. My secret spot had its gate closed today, which didn't stop me from "piggybacking" in when another car opened the gate. It's getting tougher to park again...
