how many times have i gone by the slate creek trailhead on the way to payson and beyond?
have always thought mt. ord would be an excellent workout hike
john invited me along today and then suggested that we throw in little mt. ord
we both like to get a lot of mileage out of a drive, so it was on
john made the good call to hit the little one first, after we reached the road at the five mile point
this piece was a nice bonus to the day
hiked on a 4wd road then bushwhacked to the peak
that accomplished, we went back to the five mile point and headed up to the towers
good road, some shade, nice going through pines and oaks
at the top, we were invited to come up to the fire lookout, and chatted with rob for about 20 minutes
the views from there were incredible!
you could see all the major peaks of the mazatzals, three of four peaks, the bradshaws, roosevelt and bartlett lake, and an interesting perspective of punkin center
this hike exceeded my expectations as i thought it might just be a good way to get some mileage and elevation
felt pretty good, and the weather was cool enough
pretty sure this was my longest hike ever, edging out a rim to rim several years ago
thanks for the hike, john
