Spur of the moment, I decided to go hike this peak. Not too far from where I live. Unexpectedly pretty hike on a desert peak. Surprised to see fresh footprints in the road, figuring this peak gets hiked maybe 4-5 times a year overall. Even more surprised to discover the prints were those of a buddy of mine, who hiked the peak just the day before!
