when i saw that jack had been up near little four peaks recently, angela, jack and i planned a hike for today
unfortunately angela could not come along, but we were joined by larry and preston
we followed the official track backwards, hitting the little ones first
larry and preston made it up to the first two, but weren't feeling the scramble on the third
it wasn't bad at all going up, the only difficulty being wet shoes and decreased traction
the downclimb took a little care
after hitting the highest point, looked like another little peak to the south
chose not make the time and effort commitment to this one
in looking at all the posted tracks, it looks like i covered the same ground, so i'm not sure exactly how many we
all got up
hit the highest point, so i'm happy
dropped back down to the saddle and we all went up 2980(?), with jack already there
wonderful views from the high points, of four peaks, the superstitions, mazatzals, and goldfields
snow on four peaks and the mazzies
signed the summit register, then headed down
larry and i hit a couple other little peaks, then took a different wash down, eventually meeting up with preston and jack
went through the target practice area and back to the vehicles
since the hike was only two miles, we hiked up a jeep road across the way
again hit a few high points and enjoyed good views
i'm sure the boys had a cold one at the bluebird mine store, but I had to head back home (as I now get to work every day until Christmas)
thanks for the hike, guys
nice to get out for something new and different and actually do some exploring with good company
i don't do enough of that
this year i wanted to summit a dozen new peaks
could count this as eleven (the highest of lfp) and twelve (2980), but might just count it as my 11th
should have more time after christmas
