I survived Rincon Peak for the third time! The last section redefines steep every time. It was very windy on top. I was glad that I brought my hat and gloves since I spent about 50 minutes on top.

During the last mile of the hike, we saw an Arizona Black Rattlesnake. One of the best Rattlesnakes to run into as they are very shy and they move away instead of rattling at you!

We were lucky and didn't see anyone else on the trail. I'm so glad that many people tend to do the same hikes over and over and leave the gems to us!

This is definitely one of the best hikes around Tucson.
