Piestewa this Afternoon...

Weather:  57°, overcast, chilly

Time:  23 minutes

About this hike:  I debated going to Piestewa this afternoon.  Phoenix is full of tourists this weekend for the college football event downtown.  This means they'll all be out for a hike in our cool, damp weather.  Despite my internal objections, I rose above and made the drive up to Piestewa.

It was every bit as crowded as I expected with tourists, children, etc.  Regardless, I had an enjoyable hike and pushed very hard.  My efforts paid off as I tied my previous record.  Not sure ascending Piestewa (safely!) in less than 23 minutes is ever going to be a reality for me.  Twenty-three minutes is still a respectable personal best.
