Our 4th short hike of the day on Mt. Graham. We started from the Ash Creek Trailhead and just went straight up Webb Peak #345 and back. Our first real climbing of the day, and it felt good. Mostly a gentle climb with a few lightly steep sections. There were a lot of aspens on this trail and most of them were at their peak. The best fall foliage of the day. We saw a couple deer when we hit the big aspen grove.

A storm seemed to be forming, and it rained on us for a short time when we got to the peak. The threat of a thunderstorm coupled with my fear of heights/falling made me chicken out on climbing the lookout tower. :( Maybe next time. Even without climbing the lookout tower this is still the highest peak I've ever hit. Cool to know I was at 10,000+ ft.

The storm never hit and we had a nice hike back down to the trailhead. Nice trail, and a fairly easy 10,000+ ft peak bag.
