|Despite all this man power on today's hike, no one would carry me.
|The last 1/4-mile was a struggle for me. Thanks to my friend and hiking buddy David for not leaving me in the hot sun as buzzard feed.
|3.5 miles (or 3.8 according to David's GPS). This was my first visit to Scottsdale's McDowell Sonoran Preserve, it's a lovely area. It was toasty warm today with a high of 106 degrees.
|Back in the truck, phew, difficult hike!
