    With stormy weather over Mt Graham this am, today's trip became quite a memorable one .....

    Headed up early for a full day on top. By the time I reached Ladybug Saddle at 7am I was driving through the low flying clouds with 30 degree temps and a light snow falling all the way to Grant Hill. Grant Hill was my main focus to get done today and I choose the outer loop clockwise. Man oh man ..... crazy cold May overcast snowy weather and I was not sure how this was gonna go. Overcast, sunny, overcast, etc ... the first half of the hike. Arrived at the second big overlook and hung my hammock, boiled up some coffee and watched as clouds came up the mountain side and engulfed this 9000 ft overlook and started to drop "styrofoam" snow. Packed up quick and headed down the other half as it just came down harder. I thought wow ... in May, it was beautifully cool! Made it back around and after a short hike down the Swift Trail to check out the big meadows, I drove a bit down the road to High Peak #507.

    At High Peak I checked out an old Spur road I've wanted to hike for ever and today I finally did. It was one of those "why haven't I ever been down this" moments. What a cool scenic old forest road it was that hugs around the mountain side with brand new views worth seeing. I created a page for this one and can't wait to show it to partners (attn:Preston).
    I also made a short stop at Wet Canyon on the drive down home to check on things. The canyon is now full of the most columbine flowers I have ever seen in one place and everything is green, green & green!

    4 white-tails, 3 Abert's & 1 of them little controversial red squirrels were the animals spotted on this trip.

    I am one of those people that loves to hike in stormy weather and I'm always excited to find a new trail on Graham so today was a GREAT DAY on the mountain!
    :D

    To hike
    From Safford, head south on U.S. highway 191. Turn west onto state highway 366 (Swift Trail). Follow highway 366 for approximately 21.8 miles to where the pavement ends. There will be a large paved pull off/parking area on your right. The #507 (dirt) fire road heads uphill to the northeast from the pull off area. Approx 0.15 miles up #507 from the locked gate the Spur road splits to the right and down.
