Down to the Chiricahuas again to get another fire lookout (Monte Vista). Camped at one of my favorite spots: Sycamore Campground along west Turkey Creek. Saturday we did a short afternoon hike to lower Mormon Canyon. It was a very windy day, but we had some protection being down in the canyon. The usual "festive" evening was enjoyed around the fire. We were the only ones in the campground, which was probably a good thing the way we were carrying on! Sunday morning after breakfast we broke camp and started on a long tough hike at about 10 AM. Turned out to be a bit of a longer day than expected due a number of issues, but we went everywhere we planned, and still made it back to the cars before dark. There was a lot of deadfall to navigate through, but some of the trails had been cleared. We went up to the Crest Trail via Mormon Canyon and Mormon Ridge trails, then headed south along the Crest to Paint Rock and west to the lookout on Monte Vista, before racing down Morse Canyon to end it. Sunday's hike was about 11.5 miles and 4000 feet elevation gain/loss.
