Time: 31 minutes
About this hike: Cooler and humid this morning--definitely helped improve my time by a few minutes. There was rain last night as evidenced by mud and puddles. The main trails were dry though.
I ended this hike just a few minutes too early. Fox10 showed up and was interviewing the hikers right behind me. I'm a devoted Ch. 10 fan and had to see which news anchor was doing the story. I just regret it wasn't me on camera telling my hiking tales.
This may be related to a flyer that was posted at the trailhead where the City of Phoenix is holding a public forum on adding parking meters. I sure hope this gets struck down (again!). I grabbed a copy of the flyer and plan to write the elected officials noted therein. We'll see what comes of it.
