Been wanting to hit up this area for awhile, so tanya and I headed out to see some spring wildflowers and get another desert trek in before the heat comes. Had to start walking right off of AZ-238 as you can't drive on the roads within the monument yet. Saw a YCC crew out working on what looked be a ramada (I could be mistaken) near the highway, and also recent evidence of roadwork along the tracks we walked on. Trekked 2.5 miles in, then went cross-country to the top of Estrella Benchmark and got some great views of the Maricopas, coming back and topping out Peak 2272 on the way home. Very, very green out there right now, but a hint of summer was creeping into the air by afternoon. Both had summit logs on them, but no recorded visitors since 2005 on Estrella BM and 2008 on Peak 2272'
