Some people who care about stats too much needed to get some kind of a peak or county high point or something. I'm not sure.

We jumped the gun on the Mazzies by a few weeks this season I think. It was warm at 7:30 and it was downright hot in the afternoon. I forgot how much I hate Y-Bar. Call it Shake Tree if you want, it doesn't make it any better.

The summit is great though and the views are as good as anywhere in the state. Humphreys, Kendrick, Sitgreaves, BW, Mingus, Pine, Mcdowells, Piestewa, White Tanks, Estrella, Newman, Supes, Pinals, Turnbull, Graham, Lake Roosevelt, Ancha, Baldy, Escudilla, and the entire Mogollon Rim. Babo is visible on a clear day, which today wasn't. I think only the Kofas are not normally visible from here!

It seems more overgrown than last time. The summit climb is only a mile, but the 1600 feet took us well over an hour.

Blanco is a superstar! Nothing else to say on that.

Saw a group of four heading out on an overnight. HAZ sticker in the window. I'd be interested to hear how their trip went. :welcome:

Thanks FOTG for providing the ride.
