Wasn't committed to this one ahead of time, but after a Saturday night AZWilderness Beer event, and a Sunday morning Tenderloin Benedict "breakfast" at D?ck's Hideaway, along with a planned zombie party Sunday night, I thought it might be in my best interest to get the metabolism some extra work.

Not sure why I thought that hiking up a mountain when it's 110-degrees was a good idea, but once the sun went down, it ended up being ok. Nice views and a good group of people made it all ok. Looped into Hidden Valley which was nice to see in the dark. Tons of millipedes on the trail, and dozens of the freaky-looking camel spiders. Saw a very placid black-tailed rattler, and got chased off the mountain by a light haboob. Not too bad, but the dust obscured the views and was a little irritating on eyes and breathing. It cleared up enough for a light-free hike back to the car under the nearly full moon.

The zombie party was fun, but after the hiking, I was exhausted, and just couldn't hang around that long before I just gave up. :(

Good to get out at night again. Hopefully I earned myself enough health points to justify my planned Labor Day BBQ!
