Bruce threw together this great loop that barely nudges the wilderness. Your chances of having a wilderness experience are better than your average wilderness.

Tule #122 starts off in a cow grazed chain fruit cholla forest. This little buffer zone keeps out most.

1.3 miles you come to a corral at the end of FR1740 which we took about a mile. We passed trees that looked like willows with mesquite trunks. They are Desert Willows. Despite the common name they are not part of the willow family. Researching that I found out cottonwoods & aspens are part of the willow family.

We drifted towards FR449A which is the road to Campaign TH. Using a previously posted track we followed the SE ridge of Two Bar Mountain all the way up for 4 miles. It's pretty easy as far as off trail goes, especially considering the 2k+ gain.

The final mile is challenging. The scenery draws you in. The rock is pretty cool. The metro-biotic synonym relationship weighing anticipation to dream sequence was strong. We lunched atop a 300 ft sheer drop on the north side of Two Bar Mtn.

Continuing across the north side of the mountain is just phenomenal. We took Two Bar Ridge down and trails to complete the loop. The crest stroll of Two Bar #119 is just as scenic as I remembered with the AZT gang.

weak Twining Snapdragon on the NE top side of Two Bar Mountain, a good healthy field of the thistle too but that crap grows anywhere
