My first time on top of Black Top Mesa.The north side had lots of Prickly Pear mixed in with a field of green grass that looked pretty cool.Then there is the views! Nice views of Weaver's Needle and looking down at Battleship.
I saw a couple camps going in and an old prospector I had seen before on a hike with my friend BOB.Going out there were a couple dozen hikers and two groups of horseback riders.
Some flowers here and there.Lots of lizards and a few birds and butterflies.No snakes until I get back to the parking lot.There are a few hikers and a couple rangers checking out a nice four(?)foot rattlesnake crawling from car to car.Looked to be healthy and in a good mood(so far).
Great weather and hike! :D
