Whenever I take a hiking hiatus, trails like this remind me why the hiatus was a dumb idea. Here's a 360 I took from the peak, from which you can see rain clouds moving in:

It started out hot, muggy, and gross. Obviously. It's August in Phoenix. But after reaching about 2500 feet in elevation, that changed to an actually cool breeze--something I haven't felt all summer long. And then, to cap it all off, I reach the peak and there was a brilliant rainbow in full view. I would've stayed longer at the peak but it started to rain on me. Felt great. Why am I not doing this every day?

(My trip length is 4.4 because I took a wrong turn.)
