denny invited john and i to hike wrightson today
didn't have to think too hard about that one, especially with good weather forecast
hard to believe it's been five years since doing the same hike for the first time with john :o
left town early, hitting old baldy trail around 5:45
quick breaks at josephine and baldy saddle, then up to the summit
shade the entire ascent
quite humid, given recent rains and lush vegetation
lots of wildflowers
just before baldy saddle, passed an older (than us :lol: ) couple, who would summit a short time after we did
the guy announced that it was his partner's 299th ascent of wrightson
they were long time sahc members and had done all kinds of adventures
pretty fun chatting with them, and she took a couple photos of the three of us, then i took a few of them
sure hoping i am doing those kind of hikes at that age
nice temps up top
lots of ladybugs, getting into and on everything
probably the longest break we have taken on a summit, but soon enough headed back down
descended the super trail
aside from a few sticker bushes for about a mile and a half, the trail is in good shape and provides a nice grade for the descent
a nice field of columbines near baldy spring
loved this hike just as much as the first time
much more to explore in the santa ritas; would love to spend several days down there
stopped in sahuarita at pub22 for some lunch
thanks for the invite, and thanks for driving, denny
always good hiking with denny and john :)
