Afternoon hike to see if I could catch the sunset on the way back. By sheer luck I hit it exactly on my return at Inspiration Point, where I sat for about 10 minutes snapping photos. Not the most amazing sunset I've seen (by our really high Arizona standards), but let's see how they come out.

For the first time, I night hiked without the need of a headlamp. I also amazed myself for getting up to the pass and back in 3 hours. It took me 4 hours a few months ago, and that was with leg muscles that started quivering with threats of collapse at any moment after about mile 5. Progress is good. Thanks, HAZ.
