With this, I now have the three major peaks of the Rincons complete. Beautiful day but very windy. Fair amount of snow on the last stretch on the north slopes. Hit first snow patches at 5800 feet. There was some nice running water. Juniper basin was deserted but looked very nice.
I found this hike to be very pleasant. The views were great. On the way back, the Tucson view is probably the best I've seen...and I've seen a lot of 'em.
Time includes 40 minutes of breaks, moving time of 6 hours and 30 minutes.
A campfire must be extinguished by drowning it with water, stirring with a shovel, and repeating that process until the campfire is cold to the touch. A campfire is still a danger if it has any trace of heat, and must not be left or abandoned. Wildfires can begin by abandoned campfires that rebuild heat on windy days and then blowing embers ignite surrounding grasses and brush.
