About this Hike: Monsoon 2017 has been a huge tease. Every day a storm builds in from the north/east. Then it falls apart and/or rains everywhere but at my home in Central Phoenix. Regardless, during today's hike I felt the high humidity that these monsoon storms bring.
The trail at Piestewa was fairly uncrowded early on this Sunday morning. There were a few other hikers and interesting characters along the way, but I largely had the trail to myself. That's the silver lining in these higher temps and monsoon humidity. I could have parked in the main lot no problem. However, I chose the sure option and parked on the residential streets and hoofed it into the preserve.
All around an enjoyable summertime morning hike.
