Weather: 51°, sunny
Time: 28 minutes
About this hike: The crowds they were thin at Camelback Echo Canyon this morning. Spurred on by cool weather, I tied my previous record of 28 minutes. That said, I did allow myself a bit of a handicap... Generally I always stop my time just before the I reach the summit at both Piestewa and Camelback. This is to make up for slowdowns beyond my control (i.e. tourists, snow birds, selfie-takers—anything that blocks the trail). So I know, I know—I make my own rules. Regardless, I'm declaring this one a 28 minute time to the summit.
Otherwise, this was an uneventful hike, which is just the way I like them.
