I can't remember the last time I had this much fun on a 3.4 mile loop hike for a total of 7 hours 49 minutes with a stopped time of 4 hours (of either rest/snack stops, scenic pic moments, or just plain stuck in the bush :DANCE: ..)

In April'11 on another Sierra Ancha Mountains adventure to the remote Dupont Rim area, I first viewed this intriguing "Bear Head Mountain" from a distance.. http://hikearizona.com/photo.php?ZIP=188884 and had since hoped we could do some hiking here this year. Our ssk44 (Eric) has always come up with some excellent back country adventures, but this remote and diverse Sierra Ancha Mountains hike was a great Eric find and choice for me and I am very pleased I could join him.

We put it on the calendar and one hundred and forty-one pics later (with fifty-one making the cut for HAZ posting.. too many pics I know, but I loved it), I can confirm it is a winner!

I prefer to document many of my hikes with a "start-to-finish" picset and detailed captions rather than just post a few possible pic winners. My thought being.. for those interested in considering this hike, viewing the entire picset (from beginning to end) with explanatory captions will hopefully provide a better overview of what to expect and should also further complement the hike description narrative.
