All the hiking in the Mazatzal's and never made it over to Mt Peeley so today was the day. We drove to the Peeley TH and made our way up the trail towards the divide. But around the side of Peeley we jumped off trail and followed the ridgeline to the top. Great views up there and nice place to hang out for awhile enjoying a summit brew. From there it was a rock scramble to the saddle south of Peeley.

At this point we decided to make a run for Sheep Mtn and the bushwhack on the ridgeline. Slow tough going but I can imagine it was harder before the burn. Also, the weather was relatively cool with on and off sprinkles that helped keep this one doable. After what seemed like a lot of rock scrambling we made the summit of Sheep, took in the views, and then made our way down.

The original plan was a loop hike with more off trail down to the Cornucopia Trail but time was not on our side and decided to back track on the ridge. Ridge was just as fun the second time :sweat: but before Peeley we dropped down to the divide trail and followed that back to the vehicles.
