Kim and I (Jake) decided to take a few hours away from school and work and go into Phoenix to hike Camelback Mountain. It's in the middle of the city, and it's not really a mountain. Its more like some hilly rocks, much like you would find at the City of Rocks. It was a beautiful day to get outside, right around 60 degrees and sunny when we started the ascent. It's only about 3 miles round trip, but the climb takes you up about 1,500 feet, so it's fairly steep. There were a TON of people and dogs on the trail, but it was still a lot of fun!

Us at the top. There were about 15 Thunderbird alum's who had made the hike and were kind enough to take some glamour shots of us.
The great city of Phoenix, Arizona. 5th largest city in the U.S.
About halfway up the trail. It got a lot steeper afte that.
3/4ths the way up. I didn't think we'd ever really make it.
Kim perfectly posing like she always does. I didn't mean to get so much sun in the photo.
