My first trip to Mount Peeley Summit. Mark was a most gracious tour guide, taking us to and from the TH, pointing out future hiking opportunities, naming the various peaks and mountains visible both from the drive and while we out hiking, and providing me with some mining history in the area. We also talked about GPSJoe, who contributed so much to HAZ.

We left the Peeley TH a minute or two after 7 on a gorgeous morning. Looking up towards the summit, it looks like you have your work cut out for you, but the long switchbacks up the east side result in a nice easy to moderate ascent. The trail up to the Peeley summit turnoff is in great shape, as was the portion of the Mazatzal Divide trail we hiked for a ways after Peeley. The views from Peeley were awesome. Not a cloud in the sky with visibility as far as the eye could see.

After Peeley, we headed south on the Mazatzal Divide trail for a little over half a mile before heading off trail to the saddle south of Peeley. We wanted to check out frustrum number 31. After walking through portions of three counties in three seconds, we headed south towards Sheep Mountain for ways. When the route dipped sharply, we turned around and headed back.

Sheep Mountain looks like an awesome hike. I will have to come back another day. In the meantime, Mark and I had plans for another hike today, so back to the TH.

This was a beautiful hike on a beautiful day. Mark, thanks for driving!
