Now that the weather is ever so slightly cooler, I decided to make the trek up to Thompson's Peak. We started early, and were in the shade for the first couple of miles or so, which was nice. It was the typical steep climb up to the summit on Thompson Peak Rd, but even with the warm weather it wasn't too bad.

As we began to make our descent from the summit, we could smell a bit of the smoke from the Sears Fire. We could also see a bit of the smoke and haze moving into Rio Verde and Fountain Hills.

This one is definitely a good workout hike. Note that the parking lot for the trailhead does not open up until 6:00AM nowadays.

There were a few people out on the trail doing this hike, which I guess is to be expected for a Saturday.
