I've been itching to get back to South Mountain and finally hit the filet. 50-70 bikers on the park roads. One pack was probably thirty alone. Heading up I was already figuring out an alternate plan figuring parking would be full. It wasn't an issue and probably won't be for five months. Happy to see the park hours are back to 5am to 11pm!

Passed Brian right off the bat, which was a nice surprise. Explored around the rocks on the way in as usual. 6-8 mountain bikers. No pros, they all walked the obstacles. Around 12 hikers was more than anticipated. Slow going in photographing anything that looked neat. Nearing Hidden Valley the sun was broiling hot and Hikebot was starting to whimper. Almost cut it short then decided to put the camera away and walk it out.

If you see any between now and monsoon season you're probably hallucinating.
