Well this was quite the hiking day. Started off doing Margies Peak in the morning. Parking right in front of her off the road and heading straight up the southern wash. Awesome views from the top, the Gila Bend Mts. looked as rugged as ever and the rest of the Maricopa Mts. got me in the mood for hitting another peak. Got down and back to the Jeep and headed over to the Margies Cove trail. Started from the TH and hiked 2.3 miles until diverting off the trail and towards the wash heading up Peak 2495. Traversing the desert floor offered some unique views today as the sun was blocked by the clouds and a different feeling was offered than hiking it in the sun. Made my way to the summit of Peak 2495 which was named Sheep Mtn. in the register. Not many visit the summit so it was nice to reach this small rugged peak. Made my way back down to the desert floor and back to the trail where I hiked back as the sun came out and shed a new view to the area. Guess I have to come back now and hit some more of these smaller rugged peaks in the Maricopas. Love it.
Margies Peak was 2.91 miles total and Margies Cove Trail to Peak 2495 and back was 8.02 miles. Again, what a great day.
