It's Dinner time and time for my last leg of the "Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner" Hike Day. My left knee was hurting a little so on the way to Elden I made a pit stop at Circle K for some IB and a Diet Dew. I hit the Trailhead at 5:22pm (fashionably late) and off I go. This one had plenty of hikers unlike the other two.

As I ascend I can feel I have lost some of my vigor. I am 44 so I blame it on "Low T". Actually this trail reminds me of the last mile up Mt Lemmon which is also pretty taxing. Good news is that it is a short up so I remain focused on the prize. Upon reaching the Fire Tower/Summit I see that this one is not open to the Public. Bummer that would have been super cool to go inside 3 Fire Lookouts in the same day. Took my photos and down I went. It sure felt great to be descending the final stretch of my amazing day! I think this may just be the first annual "Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner" Hike excursion.

Side note: Thanks to whomever put in all the logs and rocks to create an almost staircase to the summit. Where they don't exist it can be quite slippery going down. Cheers!
