I LIKE the heat. Especially I like to find a breezy place in the sun on a ridge in summer and just soak up the heat (and the huge amount of water I take along). [edit 1/3/2013] This summer (2012) I kept hiking and didn't just scope out a ridge, and did regular 10 and 12 mile hikes mid-day summer. It was really wonderful and very different from the desert otherwise; and the monsoons, WOW!!! Just keep going and you can acclimate to the heat and see a world you haven't experienced since you were a kid running around out in the desert and not affected by heat. Besides, the parking situation rocks ;-)
