This was a good one to do on a busy holiday weekend. As far as I could tell, only one other hiker went to the summit, and possibly a couple of trail runners did as well, before I got there. I started hiking at 6:15 or so. This hike can be hot, but it had rained the day before, and it was quite cool. It never got very warm until I was halfway down, but by then it was late morning.

The woman working the fire tower wanted to chat, but said that even with masks she wasn't allowed to have visitors inside the tower this year. Understandable. So she stayed on her perch and I stayed on the ground, and we chatted.

The views are great. Sunset Crater, the peaks, the long views to the south and east.

This is the longest hike I've done since hiking Humphreys Peak in August a couple of years ago. My left foot and both hips were a bit achy, but not to the point of real pain. I'll need to rest the foot for a few days, ride my bike instead.
