Echo Canyon  Sucess!

Did this in the afternoon on a full belly after a big Thanksgiving dinner. Did it in about an hour and fifteen minutes finishing at sunset. Nice leg workout.

Head to tail and back again... Started to rain and things got a bit slippery... Great views and nice urban park...

Cholla and Echo Canyon  Sucess!

Climbed pretty much every week from late May to late Aug last year. Both are nice trails, Echo is steeper and shorter, sometimes tougher to get parking, especially around sunrise. I also did the loop (up Cholla and down Echo) then back around to the car for a bit longer hike, though some of it is on sidewalk!

Camelback in the Morning  Sucess!

An amazing urban hike & a beautiful little mountain. I climbed it every morning I got the chance while I was in Phoenix; its a must-climb if your in the valley, but show up before sunrise. I personally did the ascent in under 29 minutes one morning, but i suspect it could be done much faster.

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.

Nice Hike  Sucess!

I really enjoyed being able to hike up a mountain so close to the city.

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.

Echo Canyon Trail  Sucess!

Hiked with my wife and some friends while we were in town for a wedding. Lots of people but still nice.

Returned with Benjamin (our middle child) after his Nike regional XC meet. Cebolla trail, nice day. 11/23/19

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.
