1st trip
I had some time after work and I wanted to do a trail run. I headed for the Geronimo Trail at South Mountain. In my opinion, Phoenix-area urban trails are the least interesting place to hike. But I really tried to be open-minded this time. The climb up to National Trail drained me and I quickly realized that I was not in adequate shape to run at a pace that I felt comfortable calling a "run." My frustration at my slow pace quickly gave way to pleasant surprise. The Geronimo and National trails are not bad. I was chasing the sunset the whole time, so mostly keeping to the shade. I only saw one other person until Mormon Trail.

This felt like the longest golden hour I've experienced - fantastic lighting. I would do this again. And that's something I never thought I would say about Somo.
