Breezy Saturday at Piestewa

Weather:  75°, sunny, breezy

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!
