Easiest way to log this, as I did not actually summit SP, but was literally next to it, and the views are similar. With a -4 morning and a cold start, I had no intentions of Elden, so off on a scenic drive I went, and by late morning I was out in the grass north of the Peaks. I wound up headed right for SP, finding it easier to get to than expected. I parked about where the hike starts, but slightly up road, and went towards it, but didn't feel like fighting sliding cinders, so went up the adjacent grassy knoll. Nice views.

Really nice and quiet out here. Stopping for a moment while hiking down, I heard the sound of rolling rocks, and looked over to see about 10 mule deer running on the side of SP. Cold, only 32, but sunny with no wind, so not bad. Nice to explore in June, perhaps, which is the earliest I see myself coming back to northern AZ.
