Time: Not taken. I started the stopwatch on my phone, but then made the mistake of checking an email while hiking. For some reason this causes the app to shut down.
About this hike: It felt good to get back to Camelback after a few weeks. The hotter weather (and the fact a hiker died there this week!) cleared out the parking lot.
A month later and the knee is still bothering me. It's fine until I go hiking, so I slap on a velcro brace and tough it out. Gotta embrace the brace. For some reason I had a lot of fatigue starting at the second vertical. I had to make multiple stops, which was very disappointing. I'm conditioned to handle this, even if it's a little warmer out!
At the summit I met a group of hikers and ended up getting my picture taken with them. We exchanged phone numbers and said we might all hike as a group sometime. No place like the trails to make new friends :)
