after seeing my comments on wanting to hike dome mountain, mark proposed a loop that took in both dome mountain and panorama peak
he also extended an invite to tibber and az lumberjack, with angela taking him up on it
met at the dome mountain trailhead, and mark drove us to the 1356 turnoff, saving a mile and a half road walk each way
about 3/4 mile on 1356, then another 3/4 mile on a cairned use trail up to a saddle
another half mile to the peak, again following a decent trail, complete with painted white lines
there are several other ways to get up there, but this trail makes for an easy summit of the highest peak in the goldfields
dropped off the west side and went down to the camo tanks
up to the ridgeline that led to panorama peak
small summit area, and great 360 views of the goldfields and superstitions
descended to the north, exploring some cool rock formations, then taking lunch on another little ridge
the rest of the hike was an off-trail tour of some areas to the north
beautiful vistas as we crested each ridge, more interesting lichen covered rock formations and some little caves
exited through a wash and topped out on the original saddle
two more peaks accessible from this saddle: 3134 and 2972
a nice tour of this range, and a reminder of how much there is yet to explore
good to meet and hike with cannondalekid
thanks for putting this together, mark
angela, glad you came along
