About this hike: Unplanned evening hike up Piestewa. I am so glad I did it--has been a stressful day and I needed the hike. Despite the temperature reading of 95° from my car, I never broke a sweat...it honestly wasn't unpleasant temperature wise. Gnats, on the other hand, were almost as bad as at Camelback yesterday. Needless to say, I didn't hang around the summit too long. I have no idea why the bugs are so unusually bad this year.
