I drove out to the Usery Pass gate to Bulldog, with the intention of hiking up Lone Mountain but on a whim I decided to hike a wide peak-and-ridge loop on the west side of Usery Pass Road. Along the way I will cross over the summits of four numbered peaks, Peaks 2608, 2933 (Phoenix sign), 2673 and 2972 (Usery Mountain).

Just over halfway around the clockwise loop I met three older gentlemen who were hiking in the opposite direction, intending to make a similar loop. Having seen fresh tracks and scat of the horses that appeared to be traversing the ridge in the opposite direction as I was, I had an inkling they might still be in the wash along the west side of Usery Pass Road. So after completing my loop I followed the wash about a quarter mile north and sure enough, there they were.

With the shooting range closed for Christmas I could enjoy the silence.
