I had to do this one again for the views. I was here about a month ago but the summit was covered in fog that day and visibility was near zero.

Started from Tom's Thumb temporary parking area. Followed a boulder chute up towards the summit and then eventually found a use trail that took us all the way. Stopped along the way to check out some boulder caves. There were many bees in the area today, we had to take the long way around several trees to keep a safe distance. Awesome views from the top: East side of the Mcdowells, Fountain Hills, Verde River, Bartlett Dam, etc..

So now these guys are chasing it around the field again but this time they start pelting it with rocks. The horse was panicking and didn't know where to go. Rocks were being hurled at it from all directions. He ended up falling down after a really hard rock hit and it looked like he broke...
