Kyle saw my photo of Davenport Peak from a few weeks ago and a plan came together :) Apparently I was supposed to inform the group about the hike/plan but I lost the memo.

A great group of five set off on Sears trail to bag Davenport Peak. Just before the old corral Bob and Todd took the direct way while the rest of us looped around through the springs area which was surprisingly dry. I thought I had plotted the "easiest" route up but I'm pretty sure it was the worst one with more loose scree and crumbly rock than the other routes :roll:

Lunch at the top was perfect with great views and a bald eagle soaring above 8) On the return we took a ridge down and into Davenport Wash. I'd been up part of it from the bottom and from Andrea spring but not quite this far. It was a bit slow going but fun with water, alcoves, pinnacles, massive boulders and near the end a red tailed hawk.

It was great to meet Kyle, finally got to hike with chums and hike again with Bob and Taylor. Nice to hangout and have some refreshments at the end. Thanks everyone.
