I did not have a burning desire to return here but it worked out well with another hike in the area.

The tiny parking lot was full but I anticipated seriously overflowing @ 8am. Then again it seemed oddly warm driving up in 77° looking at Humphrey's at the end of May.

Cheery lady at the lookout tower let us know that it was closed to visitors and suggested some lookout options. The views over the National Monument are pretty sweet! Nice patterns of rock on the mountains.

Yesterday morning hiking down Piestewa I was chittin' n chatting about how it was the coolest 111 degrees day ever... well at 10 am anyhow. Turn the record over dawg, this was the hottest Flagstaff hike I remember. It isn't even summer yet!

Unfortunately Bruce had tire trouble on the road in. Which is typically sedan friendly, he just got unlucky.

Synopsis
Not my favorite hike. Like any hike, it's a good hike with good company.
