Ascent Trip Report

Hiked up Superstition Mountain. Early in my hikiing/backpacking experiences and I forgot how much water you lose in the desert and made the hike without bringing any water. A mistake i would never make again as i got so dehydrated after the hike i was sick for hours.

Karen hiked up about two thirds of the way and then sat and let me finish without here and did not summit.
