This was my first sampler of the MSP area, and I really liked what I saw! The McDowell's for me have always been "drive by scenery" on the Beeline. These mountains jet right out of the desert floor, and are quite photogenic from the perspective you get along the Dixie Mine Trail.

This baby is steep at the end! These kinds of grades reminded me of climbing passes on the Colorado Trail. I may need to come back out here with a fully loaded backpack for some training.

Saw 2 other people at the top when I got there, but they were leaving, so I had the peak to myself the rest of the time I was up there. Didn't see anyone else beyond Dixie Mine besides them, actually.

Can't wait to explore more of MSP.
