"I feel like every time I hike Piestewa with someone new they always have a good story to tell about this mountain.
For example, there is an older gentleman who has hiked this peak EVERYDAY for 25+ years. I can never remember his age but he must be between 75-85 yrs old. You can spot him in the mornings between 5-8 AM sparking conversations with everyone and lighting up the mountain with his cool "Squaw Peak" T-Shirt. This tough man is definitely a legend and inspiration on this mountain.
Also, fun fact: This mountain was named after Lori Piestewa, a member of the Hopi Tribe and the first known American Indian woman to die in combat with the U.S. military. She was killed during the Iraq War in 2003. A Badass mountain named after a badass woman."
