twofold mission today:
a couple of peaks and a longer hike in preparation for the pinal 4X
thought about doing patrick's route http://hikearizona.com/gps=11459 but thought it might be a little too long for me right now
my favorite loop is mesquite willow, so i went up to barry goldwater peak via mesquite, then took the service road over to the radio summit
descended a ridge down to goat camp, took goat camp to the intersection with ford canyon, then ford canyon to willow springs trail
about three quarters of a mile off trail on each peak, with well worn and in the case of goldwater, well cairned use trails
around 2.3 miles on the road
spent a few minutes on each summit, finding the registers but no benchmarks
the road part was longer than i thought with twists, turns, ups and downs
underestimated this loop by a couple of miles
think i would do some variation on patrick's loop next time, cutting across on the road
had fun making the route work without too much repetition
nice day, quite a few people out
had a good time with mission accomplished

dry Willow Spring - White Tanks Dry Dry
stagnant pool, but a good sized pool at the base of the waterfall
