Weather: 92º, sunny
About this Hike: I was with some good company and chose not to do a time trial. With warm-ish temps (although very nice for late May), I didn't want any of my visitors to croak from heat exhaustion. No Cholla trail here though—my visitors are required to do Echo Canyon :)
The trail wasn't too crowded this Friday morning. We saw some wildlife including several big orange lizards and a unique bird. Maybe a roadrunner?
Routine and enjoyable late-spring hike before the real heat sets in.
