Had an epic planned for today, but then found out that I was the on-call. New York colleagues all have social lives so I couldn't get too far out of town today. So to South Mountain!

Second car in the parking lot at 6:40. Just barely light enough to leave the headlamp in the car, trail was easy to follow and (most) junctions were simple to resolve. That climb felt great. Combined with the humidity this morning it fogged up my glasses nicely. Passed two runners (on their way down?!?) and stopped for a quick snack break at the peak. Juncture with National Trail, with that epic cloudy view of Telegraph, was another reason to stop and gawk for awhile. Chatted with another hiker coming up from the pass before continuing to Goat Hill. The split up to the peak was easy to make out without checking route, enjoyed my first sun of the day with a cool breeze up there. While on the peak I got paged twice, once for work and once from wife, and the latter was reason to take an early exit down Lost Mine Trail. This option was a ton of fun, would love to take it up if I'm out here again. Played around at the mines before losing the trail(s) and just taking the wash out. Saw over three dozen people after rejoining Pyramid Trail - really thankful for the solitude that the early start gave me.

Oh, and recently jumped on the iPhone train and used RS for this trip. It's freaking awesome.
