Beat my best time up, which was yesterday, by about 30 seconds. Had to take it easy on the way down though, with it being muddy and slippery, and dark. Not a lot of people out tonight.

Got the last spot in the parking lot. It's getting crowded out there. Beat my best time up by a decent margin... about 23:30 this time. Probably would've made it down faster if it wasn't dark, but still my best overall time. I'll be glad when the days get a little longer again. Awesome sunset tonight.

Planned to do a much longer hike today but I had a splitting headache. Had to rest that off and do something shorter today. I always like doing North Mountain or Shaw Butte though. My girlfriend and I went up and down twice, starting from the southern 7th st TH. Trail was fairly busy but not too bad. Odd considering the beautiful weather today.

I was planning on taking my girlfriend on the Piestewa Circumference trail, but when we got to the TH she decided she wanted to brave the summit trail instead. Her first time here. Parking lot was crazy packed...we got the last spot in the last parking lot! The hike was a lot of fun despite the crowds. I don't know if my girlfriend will want to do this one again, but she made it to the top OK.

Back to the Mormon Trail. There were only 2 spots left in the parking lot... people must be taking advantage of the warmer weather. Really nice out there. My legs were a little sore but I still made pretty good time. This is one of my favorite short workout hikes.

Late morning hike with my girlfriend and a couple of her friends. A little chilly out but it was still shorts and t-shirt weather in the sun for me. Trail was a little busy but not too bad. Only a couple people at Dobbins Lookout.

Believe it or not this is my first time doing the Piestewa summit. Only had time for a short workout trail today, so I figured I'd finally give this one a try. Crowds usually get me down big time, but I felt like I could brave it today. Got there around 10:30am and it was packed! All the first 4 or 5 parking lots were full with several cars waiting for a spot. I just parked down the road and walked a bit, which is where my extra mileage came from.

The trail itself was fun. Steep but manageable. I held up a little better than I expected, maybe because I was forced to take several breaks to let people come down. Would love to hike this one on a quiet day (if that exists for this trail...). Not a hike I'll be doing regularly on the weekends, but I'm glad I did it this time.

Didn't feel up to anything too strenuous today, so I took my girlfriend to Pass Mountain. The TH was really crowded but we found parking. A little chilly but very sunny so we didn't really need jackets. Not a whole lot of people on the trail. Guess everyone was on Wind Cave.

Did the loop CCW this time, thinking it'd be better to get those boring couple miles on the south side out of the way first. Well, I didn't remember the west side being so boring too, so that section really dragged at the end. The best part of this loop is the east side. The rest is pretty unexciting. For some reason I enjoyed it more the first time. I don't think I'll be doing this trail again. It was cool seeing snow on the Supes though, and all the snow on Four Peaks and the Mazatzals.

Stayed up way too late last night to get up early today to see any snow. I didn't wanna drive too far for my first hike of the year but I wanted a good workout, so I did my closest local hike. The trails were pretty busy, but not the worst I've seen them. Didn't start until about 1pm. It was really cold at first, but when the sun came out I took my jacket off and did the rest of my hike in a t-shirt. Saw some snow on the McDowells and up in Cave Creek and the New River Mtns.

Did the loop CCW starting from the 7th ave TH. Went up the steep SW side of North Mountain, which was quite a workout. Went down the paved side and decided to go back up again to get over 2000 AEG today. Going down North Mountain the 2nd time I saw a couple guys coming up the trail pushing a huge wooden Christmas tree. One of the guys was actually inside of it! I stopped and took a photo of them, and they said they were pushing it all the way to the top. Not sure why they were doing this exactly, but this is the kind of thing that usually makes urban hikes just as interesting to me as wilderness hikes.

Made my way over to the Shaw Butte. There were hundreds of quail out today. Just a couple people at the summit. It was just beautiful out there at this point. Went over to the other little peak to the west as I was going down Shaw Butte as I still didn't want my hike to be over. Really enjoyed this first hike of the year, and I feel good about the year ahead.

Got out of work early so wanted to do something other than my usual. We started from the 7th Ave TH. Took trail 100 up and then around to the paved side of North Mountain. Went to the peak and returned the way we came. Didn't feel comfortable taking my girlfriend down the steep and rocky SW side to make the shorter loop, especially while it was a little muddy. Very cold out there tonight, but that meant that the park was almost completely empty. We saw maybe 10 people out there. Very nice!

This hike puts me at 547 miles and 115k AEG for the year. Also 113 miles and 24k AEG for the month of December... my best month so far. Looking forward to doing much more in 2015.

After work hike. A little chilly out but still shorts weather. Parking lot was pretty full when I got there, but everyone must have been trying to beat the cold, because I didn't see a single person coming up when I was heading down, and I was the only car left in the parking lot. Not my best time, but not bad.

Our 2nd and unfortunately last hike of our Christmas vacation in LA. I wanted to visit Santa Monica and the Malibu/Santa Monica Mtns area. I read about this hike and it really interested me. A perennial creek and waterfall, and some ruins to explore...count me in. So we drove up the Pacific Coast Highway and got to the trailhead around 10am. We were surprised to find plenty of parking available.

You have a few different loop options here. We took an immediate right up the stairs and got onto the Rising Sun Trail. It was a pretty good climb up and out of the east side of the canyon. We had ocean views behind us pretty much right away. There's no shade on this trail at all, but it was very chilly and breezy today, so we welcomed the sun. We saw hardly anyone on this part of the hike. About a mile and a half into the trail we started descending the switchbacks down to the creek and the Tropical Terrace house ruins area.

The ruins were awesome, but there were a lot of other people hanging around there. It was cool to see the vegetation reclaiming the area. There were a lot of non-native tropical plants, and some palm trees. The ruins are well-preserved. We went over to the waterfall just behind the ruins and hung out there for a bit. Very serene, and I always love the sound of running water. Crazy to imagine this place being someone's back yard.

We started back on the main Solstice Canyon Trail, which was far busier than the Rising Sun Trail. We didn't want to cut the hike so short, so we ended up taking a right onto the Sostomo Trail. I really couldn't find a whole lot of useful information on the trails in this area, so I wasn't exactly sure where it was going, except that it obviously went up. It ended up taking us pretty steeply up and out of the west side of the canyon, down to a creek crossing, and then back up out of the canyon again. The view down into the canyon was nice, and as we climbed the ocean views got even better. We climbed probably ~1000ft in just over a mile. Definitely a workout!

We came to a junction with the Deer Valley Loop Trail. I wasn't sure where that went either, but we figured what the heck. It ended up looping us back around to this very same junction. It was mostly uneventful up here, except for when we came to a southern overlook and we had an absolutely spectacular panorama of the Pacific Ocean and the surrounding mountains. As a native Arizonan that very rarely sees an ocean, an ocean view like this just stopped me in my tracks. We stopped and took in the views for several minutes before continuing. This spot alone was worth all the extra mileage and AEG.

We looped back to the main trail and followed that back to the trailhead. It was a nice, peaceful stroll, and we were back to the parking lot in no time. This ended up being a MUCH more strenuous hike than I intended, which I was fine with. My girlfriend, not so much. :) This was a really great day hike.

My girlfriend and I spent our Christmas vacation in the LA area with her family, so I wanted to get a couple hikes in while we were there. This seemed like a quintessential LA city hike, going up to the iconic Hollywood Sign. I'd been to the Griffith Park Observatory but had never hiked here. We got started fairly early on Christmas morning, so the crowds weren't out yet and we easily found parking. The weather was just perfect. Slightly chilly but sunny and breezy.

The hike is basically a series of wide fire roads that go right up to behind the sign. None of the trails/roads are marked so I made sure I knew which way we were going beforehand. It's just over 3 miles to the top of Mount Lee where the Hollywood Sign is. It's a steady climb, but nothing too steep. It gets a little steep in the last mile before the sign, but it's very manageable as it's on a paved road. It was an exceptionally clear day, so we took our time and really enjoyed the views of the LA area, the San Fernando Valley to the north, and the Pacific Ocean. It was even clear enough for us to see Catalina Island off in the distance.

We made it to the top and even though the trails weren't too busy on the way up here, there were at least 2 dozen people hanging around at the summit. We didn't stay long because of that. On the way down we decided to extend our hike by taking the connecting trail over to Cahuenga Peak, which is the highest point in Griffith Park. It's only about half a mile to Cahuenga Peak, but it's a good 500 ft climb, and it's a surprisingly steep and rugged single track trail. Nothing like the fire roads we hiked to get up here, so it was a nice change of pace. The 360 degree views from the peak were awesome...much better than the views from the Hollywood Sign.

We made it to the peak and saw the Wisdom Tree another half mile away to the west and decided to keep going. It was a nice hike along the ridge to the tree, with great views on both sides and further into the Santa Monica Mountains to the west. There was a summit register under the tree full of all kinds of odd things. We hung out for a bit, enjoyed the breeze and the beautiful weather, and headed back the way we came. There were a LOT more people coming up as we were going down. Good thing we made it out here early. I can only imagine how crowded these trails get on the weekend.

And to cap off a great hike, we crossed paths with Vince Vaughn just before we got back to the trailhead! He said hello to us as we passed. Only in LA! We got back to the trailhead and took the little detour to Bronson Caves, aka the "Batcave" from the original Batman TV series. Pretty cool to see.

Don't expect even an inkling of solitude, but this is a great urban hike. If you're in the area it's definitely worth doing at least once. We'll be checking out more of the Griffith Park trails the next time we're here.

Another day off, and another good hike. This one may have been a bit ambitious after my hike yesterday, but it's been on my list for a while. Got to the Pyramid TH around 10am and there were about 10 other cars there. Guess a lot of people took this week off work. Cool and breezy out, and not as hazy as it was yesterday.

Made my way up the Pyramid Trail and ended up getting on the wrong trail. I ended up on the trail just to the east of the Lost Ranch Mine Trail. I can't find a specific name for this trail, though it's part of the "Lost Camp Loop" and is named "Eliminator II" on Google Maps. I had already climbed up a good, steep 200 ft before I realized it, but I knew this one met up with the National just like the other anyways, so I kept going. The trail was very steep with a lot of loose footing. Probably one of the steepest trails I've hiked. Took a couple breaks on the way up, and eventually made it to the National. Woo!

When I got to the top I saw Goat Hill on my right, practically begging me to visit... so I did. Nobody on Goat Hill this time. Just how I like it. I love the little white butterflies that are always on top of Goat Hill. Headed back west on the National, checking out the mines along the way. I love this western end of the National. Connected to Bursera and made my way back. I was pretty exhausted by the time I was climbing back up Bursera. Passed 10-15 other people on Bursera, and another 5 or 6 going back on Pyramid. I was kind of bummed that I was so tired, because I wanted to check out the Lost Ranch ruins. Next time.

Had the day off today, so of course I went hiking. I was feeling confident today, so I decided to try something harder than my usual hikes. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to do this hike, but I wanted to challenge myself. I was also excited to play around with my early Christmas gift, a Panasonic ZS30.

Got to the TH about 10am and was surprised to see 7 or 8 cars in the small parking lot. The air quality was terrible today...horrendously hazy, and very sunny. Probably not the best day to test out my new camera. The first mile and a half was a piece of cake. Looking back at about the 1.5 mile point, I realized I had gained some elevation, but it wasn't noticeable at all. Then the switchbacks started, and they were pretty steep. The grassy valley at the 2 mile marker was very nice, and a good breather too. More steep climbing after that, which doesn't really stop til you get to the top.

I had read that the spur trail to the summit was a little hard to find, but thankfully there were a couple guys taking a break right at the spot. One of them asked me if I was going up to the radio towers and showed me where the trail starts. Good thing, because it doesn't look like the start of a trail at all. The guy left a cairn there after I thanked him and started my way up. I thought I might be pretty fatigued at this point, but I was still feeling good.

The summit trail is pretty easy to follow for the first half mile or so if you pay attention. The last 1/4 mile, however, the trail is virtually non-existent. It gets very steep, as you're basically just scrambling up the rocks. I was already dreading coming back down this part. Finally made it to the top and soaked in the views, and some radiation. The views weren't the best due to the extreme amount of haze, but the haze also gave me a weird "in the clouds" kind of feeling. I could see almost nothing except the tops of the peaks of the other surrounding mountains. Signed the summit register and headed back down.

Heading down the steep sections actually wasn't too bad. I just took it slow and made sure I had good footing. My knee seems to be healed now as I haven't had any pain while going back down on my last few hikes. Only saw 1 other hiker going back down, until I ran into a group of 10-12 people on a horseback tour near the beginning of the trail. Was hoping to see some wildlife today that I could test my camera on, but nothing except birds and lizards. Very happy with how my photos came out though for the most part.

This was my first 2000+ AEG hike, and I crossed the 2000 mark by a good margin. Very happy with how I held up today. I was a little tired when I got to the top, but not exhausted. Great hike, and I can't wait to challenge myself with some even harder hikes soon. Flatiron has been a goal of mine for a while now, and I think I might be ready for it. :)

Morning hike with my girlfriend and one of her friends. Her friend had only been to South Mountain a couple times, and had never been to Hidden Valley. Did the Mormon Loop with Hidden Valley added on. The Mormon Trail was very busy as usual, but the National and Hidden Valley weren't bad at all. Nice hike.

Stats are approximate as my GPS stopped working mid-hike again...
