A memorial hike of sorts.

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.

Nice write-up on this one, Jeff.
