I decided I was no longer going to let the heat keep me inside so I made plans with friends and hit the trail!  Photo by @hikerocknroll
It was hot. It was humid. Once we made it to the top of the summit, it didn’t matter!

I’ve never been so happy for clouds in all of my life! They actually did cool us down a little.

Hieroglyphics Trail – Superstition Mountains with members of the Mountain Chicks group

I almost backed out of this hike because doing it meant waking up at 0330
After driving over an hour to the trailhead it was disheartening to find storm clouds when no rain was predicted. We considered cancelling the hike but went forward cautiously.
How the trail got its name!
We were fortunate to not get rained on, but lucky enough to have water running through the waterfall, a rarity for this area!  Photo by @felissas_adventures
