About this hike: My time of over 30 minutes was terrible this morning! The heat really got to me. After years of doing this I thought I was conditioned. More than anything my legs experienced fatigue and I had to stop quite a bit. Otherwise it wasn't very crowded today and was an uneventful hike.
"The Mountain" left a gift—a box of apricots at the trailhead. I grabbed a few and they ended up getting smashed in my hiking/hydration pack. No more excuses—it needed a good cleaning.
