1st trip
left work early this morning so had plenty of time to hit the pinals
had three things in mind: two peaks, some fall color and a longer hike with some elevation
started up sixshooter at 7:45
good color in the upper reaches, but as joe mentioned, maybe a week away
hit pinal peak, then took the upper road to signal peak
as i started down icehouse, heard a gunshot echoing up the canyon
that was a little disconcerting, but i never saw or heard man nor beast
in fact, i didn't see anyone on the trails all morning
my gps died on top of signal peak, but i have a decent estimate on mileage from some other tracks
the upper half mile or so of icehouse was stunning with reds and golds and a carpet of fallen leaves - still not prime, though
wish i had not taken the upper road, but had dropped down to ferndell
thought about backtracking, but didn't feel like it at that point
returned to my truck at 12:45
next time i would go up telephone and upper icehouse, hit only signal peak, then head for ferndell and take sixshooter down
it would be worth the trip to drive up and just hike some of the upper trails within the the week or so
