apologies to u2.
it was an awesome sunset tonight.
against my better judgment,
i went out to ride (hike) some of the
southwestern sections of 1a that start on the far southern side
of the dreamy draw area, accessed after the tunnel before you get to
at the top of 220 i heard two hikers off to my right
and a faint "hi" in the dark. i stopped and returned
the greeting. an older couple with no lights asked if i knew how
to get back to the piestewa peak parking lot.
i asked if they were ok, needed a light, etc.
they assured me they were ok and they appeared to have
enough water left. so i gave them directions and sent them on their way.
still worried me a bit.
