Weather: 56°, sunny
Time: 24 minutes
About this hike: This was a routine Piestewa hike. I regret believing my tablet's weather app when it said 43°... I ended up wearing a thermal and was way too hot. The trails were surprisingly not crowded; a direct conflict with the situation in the parking lots.
I might have spent the least amount of time ever at the summit today. Normally I find it very serene and enjoyable to relax at any of our PHX mountains' summits after a long hike. Today some other hikers were hacking their lungs up and felt the need to share with everyone. The peaceful summit ruined, and not wanting to catch their plague, I headed straight back down.
