Dylan Wojcik, a freshman at Arizona State University reflects on his numerous exertions up Camelback Mountain. Wojcik advises novice hikers on the importance of bringing water and wearing some form of sun protection as Arizona has a high rate of illness due to exposure to excessive natural heat. He emphasizes caution when hiking the trail for the first time as the rock is sometimes loose and it is more difficult to plan the timing of the hike the first time. Despite the many factors that suggest one should exercise caution, Wojcik also mentions the beauty of the trail; the work put into the upwards hike makes the view at the top all the more beautiful.
