On Saturday, took a small group of motived scouts up to Quartz Peak. This is one of my favorite hikes because of the challenge it presents, the view from the top, and solitude from the crowds at Camelback and other city hikes. I also find the quartz on top to weirdly fascinating. The hike moved along pretty good, but we didn't get all the way back to the trail head before the heat of the day set in. While certainly nothing that it could be in the summer, it was still plenty warm and that dragged on us it a bit. Fortunately we all had water and I had an ice chest full of cold beverages waiting for us back the TH to cool us off and start the relaxing recovery part. Overall, it was a good day. Everyone had a good time!
