Camelback mountain

To “train” for the Grand Canyon I did a lot of hiking at Santan on the Dynamite and Goldmine loop. But that 4.5 mile loop is nothing compared to the Grand Canyon. I knew that, but it was just the most convenient. But I also knew that I needed to do something somewhat intense before the GC. With limited time, the best we could do was a hike at Camelback.

This is such a fun hike in Phoenix. 

It is a good climb. And it is also crawling with people. Super popular.

Pretty views!

We joked around that after Camelback (an hour or so of hiking) we could tell that we were totally trained for the Grand Canyon. Ha! (The two did not compare.)
