Fun hike  Sucess!

Nice day, lots of hikers for a weekday, but better than last time I was in Phoenix, when I couldn't even find a place to park.

Echo Canyon Trail  Sucess!

This is one heck of a great after-meeting slog. After a day of sitting on a Canadair Regional Jet then presenting to potential clients, I headed out to summit this peak via the Echo Canyon Trail. I am an extremely heat intolerant person and the evening heat was torturous. I was overjoyed when the sun finally went down, which cooled the temperature a bit. I don't know how people live in Phoenix in the summer... Still, this is a great urban after work / meeting hike.

better late than never  Sucess!

Can't call yourself an AZ hiker if you don't hike
this extremely popular peak and nearby Piestewa Peak
(aka Squaw in redneck lingo)

12 times is a charm  Sucess!

Did Camelback 12 times in one day over 14 hours in late February as part of training for Rim-Rim-Rim in GC. That's 15700 feet elevation in one day.

Nice Steep Hike!!!  Sucess!

A friend, my wife, and I climbed up this gorgeous peak during a sunny morning, the day before a mutual friend's wedding. It was a good workout, and well worth the trip.

Suicide Route  Sucess!

can anyone say brutally hot... We started at 5 in the evening and climbed suicide 5.5, to summit a little under 2 hours later. Then we continued to scramble in hopes of finding the true summit. To bad it got dark and we hard to do a rappel down a random gully. Dont get off route or lots of bad rock awaits you.
