I really like this trail. The views are great and the trail is pretty neat, too. I stopped at the Cave of the Dome on the way out. It was interesting, but too dusty for me to explore more than a few caverns in, so I hiked down to the Tonto and then took that out to an overlook over the Colorado.

I think Monsoon season will begin around June 20, plus or minus 5 days, not by the calendar according to the NWS, but when dew points rise dramatically, and it begins to rain over the Sacramento Mountains. It will start about 10 days later in Arizona.
