My daughter had a soccer tournament in Phoenix, Arizona, and I had some time to kill before my flight back to Denver, Colorado, so I hiked up to Piestewa Peak.  Piestewa Peak, at 2,610' is the second highest point in the Phoenix Mountains, after Camelback Mountain, and the third highest in the city of Phoenix, Arizona.  It is located in the Piestewa Peak Recreation Area within the Phoenix Mountain Preserve, near Piestewa Parkway.  There were a lot of people on the trail.
