This would be trip number 5 for me on this Winner of a Hike. This time around Lee (FriendofThundergod) and I tackled this beast. We left Phoenix last night at midnight from the dog sitters house. With the help of a road machine built by some very capable Germans we were there in 3.5 hours.

We geared up and hit the trail at 4am as planned. I don't know for sure but my guess is that it was around 85 degrees when we started. Up we went and then up some more. I arrived at the Tram level in 4:18. From there I went to the station to fuel up on some liquids. First tram folks were just arriving. There was even a group of 38! :o Quickly I went over to fill out the permit and shortly thereafter Lee arrived. We were fortunate to get out in front of the large group.

This part of the hike is always a treat. Weather was perfect and it was an enjoyable trip from the Ranger Station to the Summit. Lee brought an American Flag which was a HUGE hit up top with photo ops.

Finally we cruised back down to the Tram Station and caught a ride back down into the oven. Shorty after we arrived out Taxi showed up and took us back to the Art Museum.

A quick bite and it was back to Phoenix. We were home before 6pm. What a whirlwind of a trip! Now that is how I like to do this one! Thanks a bunch Lee for a Great trip!
