About this hike: ASU is back to school and today is only a called-for high of 97. I expected a huge crowd and foolishly jumped on the very first parking spot I saw. That was completely unnecessary as the crowd was surprisingly light for a Saturday. I guess the walk from the main road parking area to the trailhead was a nice warm up and cool down--not that it's at all far. Give it a few more months and I'll be glad to find a parking spot at all!
Lighter crowds made for a nice hike. I could see a flooded golf course in Scottsdale, reminder of all the rain we had earlier in the week (and subsequent cooler temps!).
