Time: 23.5 minutes
About this hike: Rain yesterday—finally! The air was humid and you could still smell that wonderful "wet desert" smell all around Piestewa. There were even a few spots of standing water on the trails.
While the humidity was definitely bumped up, it was a great Saturday for a hike. The sun was often obscured by broken clouds and there was a cool breeze. Some hikers took advantage of the breeze and were flying a kite off the side of the mountain. At least they worked their way off the trail instead of blocking hikers...
Overall a very enjoyable Saturday morning hike!
