Camelback Echo Canyon

Weather:  92°, sunny, dry

Time:  37 minutes

About this hike:   All things considered for PHX in July, it wasn't that hot today.  But the sun and relative lack of breeze really got to me.  I found myself stopping frequently on today's hike.  Regardless, it was uneventful and I got it done.

Climbing for 'Merica

Weather:  92°, overcast, humid

Time:  35 minutes

About this hike:   Well I shaved almost 9 minutes off of last time.  I also didn't encounter a bee sting this time.  It was a fairly cool (by PHX standards!) morning with monsoon clouds and moisture in the air.  Being Independence Day holiday for many Monday-Friday workers like myself, I expected a crowded mountain.  Quite the opposite was true and parking was a breeze.  Otherwise, just an enjoyable hike.
