Quick hike with the boys before the heat hit. We were on the trail by 5:20 AM. Youngest (18 months) rode in the carrier for most of the way, walked maybe .2 miles along Superstition View. Oldest (3 years) walked most of the way, though he needed some help over the steep sections of Old Mine and High Point and was too tired to walk out the last half mile. Nice breeze for much of the hike, didn't even feel like 90 when we got back to the parking lot (the van claimed it was that hot, though). Oh, and the visibility was turrible this morning.

The park was a lot of fun. I usually take the boys over to San Tan for these quick outings, this was a nice change. It's free (yay!) and just challenging enough to give the oldest boy a hard time. Trails were well-defined and a bit rocky, nowhere as bad as the trail off of Broadway. The few other hikes we saw (maybe three or four groups?) were very friendly, too. Will definitely be visiting this one more often.

I decided to get BobP off the disabled list or out of retirement or wherever he's been by enticing him with a pair of peaks he hasn't previously climbed! Claire and Kyle decided to join us. :y:

Storms made for dramatic views from the Silly summit, and there are enough trails to link here that I'm surprised that Mazatzal and The Eagle haven't been out here yet. :roll:

Once we finished a quick summit loop Claire really wanted to do 9L so we headed over that way. We spent some time playing around the base, but it started to spit and we decided it wasn't worth trying to finish. Things got a little wet and we had to abort. We may be the first to attempt 9L and not make it. ](*,)

We cleaned up and headed for BRI. Nice day out there. Good to see Bob back in the game! :)

BRI is a stupid name. Glad I'm not a vegan because the menu was lacking. Chicken Sando was good. War paint was better than 480G. All that was after this amazingly challenging hike :y:
