PP times 3 was the theme of the day.

I met up this morning with the Rockadoodledude and we started our 276 mile round trip journey. The plan was to Hike Picket Post then drive down 77 to Oracle and then head over and Hike Pusch Peak and finally drive to I-10, head North and Hike Picacho Peak on the way home.

Success! The day was a bit warm especially on Pusch but we had a great time and took a bit of a beating. All in all a solid day.

Picket Post-2:06 round trip with 12 minutes break. Warm and sunny. Shade going up the "chute". Met a guy up top who was celebrating his birthday. Turns out he lives a couple streets away from me. Small world.

Pusch Peak-2:30 round trip total with 20 minutes of break time. We took a handful of small breaks on the way up so that number is cumulative. It was 101 at the Pusch Trail Head. Probably a solid 5 to 10 degrees cooler up top. Pusch pushed us hard but in the end we would prevail.

Picacho Peak-1:38 round trip with 10 minutes of break up top. Mike eyed Newman and Turd Hill. Going up to the Saddle was great with 95 degree shaded weather. The western side wasn't so pleasant with the afternoon sun beating down on us. We has Picacho to ourselves as we started at 4:00 pm. That is a rare treat in and of itself.

Afterwards we treated ourselves to DQ. Winner Winner Cheeseburger Dinner!
