Decided to go back to South Mountain this morning to take advantage of the recent "cool" weather. Got to the trailhead around 6:30am and it was already a circus. I grabbed one of the last 2 spots, and there were 4 or 5 cars behind me looking for a spot. A lot of annoying people out there today, and I was stuck behind many of them. This is probably the busiest I've ever seen the Mormon Trail.

Well, at least the weather was nice. Nice and cool with a breeze when I started. Once I made it to Hidden Valley the crowds were gone, and it was great to have some peace and quiet. Saw lots of big millipedes everywhere. It started to heat up a bit as I was leaving Hidden Valley. Coming back down the Mormon Trail I was passed by a guy on a unicycle with a big mountain bike tire on it, and a leopard-print seat. Crazy! Despite the crowds today, it was nice to be back at South Mountain.
