1st trip
Given the expected heat today, all I really wanted to do was a quick SoMo hike. Given that Denny wouldn't mind a pre-5am start, I invited him along. We met at the Pyramid trailhead at 4:45 and got started. It was really warm, and no wind at all. We headed over toward the Lost Ranch trails, and went up the trail farthest east from that wash--there is no trail name or description listed on HAZ, it's shown as Eliminator II on googlemaps, and I sometimes refer to it as Lost Mine East as it connects to the regular Lost Mine trail at the top.

I don't take that trail often, and always forget how steep it is; the heat made it no fun at all, but there was finally a breeze at the top. At the top, we headed east on National, made a quick trip up Goat Hill, then continued on National over to Pyramid and down. Saw some millipedes, but not much else in the way of wildlife. Only a few people on the trails this morning, mostly on the lower half of Pyramid. Nice hike this morning, and it was great to meet you Denny!
