Today was the perfect day to climb Picacho Peak. The trail was the most crowded I've ever seen, but most were only climbing to the Saddle. I saw my second rattlesnake this year, about 100 feet below the saddle between two rocks. We climbed to the top of Picacho and took a side trip to the top of the lower peak to the northwest.

Warning: heat kills!
Avoid 8am to 5pm over 90 degrees. Prehydrate & stay hydrated.
