Early start at the TH. The parking area was closed off, and the gate locked, when we arrived. I thought they may have shut it down due to COVID, but apparently it’s just that they don’t open it till 6 am. We parked on the street instead.

Expected more people on the trail, but wasn’t complaining after last week’s traffic jam on Piestewa. Passed a couple of hikers along the way, but had the summit to ourselves.

The climb up the road is crazy steep. I still can’t figure out how they got the concrete to sit still long enough a that slope to set up.

Saw two dbacks and a garter snake. It’s been the summer is snakes for me, but this was my first three-for.

Did a side trip to the Dixie mine on the return.

Route Scout was glitchy today and did not get a good route, so stats are from
my Garmin.

Happy Saturday!
