Full Moon Piestewa

I have no idea why but I found myself awake at 5am this morning. Knowing how hot the rest of the day was going to be I decided to take advantage of this unusual dawn rising and hiked up Piestewa.

When I got to the parking lot I was surprised to see (1) so many other cars there and (2) myself there.

I started hiking at 5:30am and that photo is taken at about 5:35am. There had been a full moon about 20 hours earlier so you can see that there's a bit missing from the lower right side of the moon in this picture. This was the coolest part of the day and the temperature was about 75F (24C) at the bottom at this time.
