I rolled into Bisbee with just enough time to visit an old favorite: Mount Ballard. Quite unexpectedly, there was another vehicle at the trailhead. Sweat came quickly despite the cold. Frozen soil and bits of snow crunched beneath my boots. Just below the summit I met the other hiker: Mark from Benson. Peaks near and far were discussed before we continued in opposite directions. A brilliant gold sunset greeted me at the top, where I signed the register, admired the amazing view, and decided against going for nearby Fissure Peak this evening. I retreated through the cane cholla and pinyon forest under the pale glow of a full moon. Mexican food in Bisbee was calling me...
