For a number of reasons I didn't go to Flag, Sedona, or the Grand Canyon as hoped over this first day of a 3 day weekend, and instead hikes this. Mostly this, for my knee. The miles were long, but the grade was good. I was surprised how fast I was on a road. The views were nice, especially of the Peaks. No Catalina views, as the 4 Peaks and Pinals blocked those, but I believe the Pinalenos were visible. Small fire on the Rim, east of Promontory, and the vast extents of the Arizona Highlands eco-region lays out before one when looking east from the summit. The Sierra Ancha block the Whites, but that is OK. I had an epiphany up there. The best views in Arizona seem to be from places I lived and left: The Peaks looking north and east in fall and winter, and Tucson with the Catalinas and Ritas. Also, the Canyon. I say this, because you really can see a lot from some of those places, with not a long drive. Now I want to do Brown or those other 3 hills.
