Squaw Peak Hike
Forecast says 97 degrees on Saturday! As temps creep up in Phoenix, Arizona, we’re taking advantage of every chance we get to enjoy the great outdoors before it’s time to hibernate in our air conditioned homes and workplaces. Yesterday, I hiked with a few friends to the 2,608 foot summit of Squaw Peak, also known as Piestewa Peak which was named in honor of the first Native American woman to die in combat in the US Military. The 1,200 foot elevation gain feels a lot like a stairmaster for the 1.2 miles each way of the hike.

I spy. From the summit, I could still check on my car in the parking lot (circled in orange!)
This weekend I also had company from my friend Tyler from Utah who you’ll remember from my post featuring his white Prelude 4WS. Tyler was gracious enough to allow me some behind-the-wheel time of this great handling little sports car.
Finally – many thanks to my roommate for putting together this entertaining picture. Indeed, my Legend lacks a cupholder and my friends love to point that out. Anyone seen the movie Bridesmaids who can relate with me?
