Our 3rd of four Thursday spring date hikes. Brad's idea to do a *double* starting from new Echo Canyon parking lot (nice!). I was trucking along until the last third of Cholla on second round (going up). Then got a second wind coming down Echo and flew 7 minutes ahead of Brad. Partially motivated by the thought of lunch at La Grande Orange and also wanting to get away from loud, slow people.

I want someone to post a sign that says "When you get momentum on these boulders - just freakin GO - don't stop! - you can breathe later". I had someone's bottom practically in my face on the stretch up Cholla. She kept hesitating (out of fear - which I do understand) but it hurts so much worse to make your knees lock up to stop and then re-initiate the movement to start again. Find your isokinetic sweet spot and just stay there!

Lunch was a total binge: commuter sandwich with prosciutto, avocado, and goat cheese. Then half a slice of red velvet cake. Fun to sit outside and you can just see the peak of Camelback from the parking lot.

Tons of brittle bush on the northeast side of Cholla trail. Scattered brittle bush along Echo Canyon and creosote.
