Piestewa Peak

Sad to hear a hiker died while climbing Piestewa Peak today.

An 83-year-old man died Tuesday while hiking Piestewa Peak in Phoenix, according to Phoenix fire officials.

The man, who had a pre-existing medical condition, was about 300 yards into the main pathway up the mountain when he had what authorities called a "significant event," possibly a heart attack or stroke.

My condolences to his friends and family.
