1st trip
Chums and I headed up to Kingman Saturday morning. This was a brand new area for me so the plan sounded great. He had done Hualapai Peak before and was more focused on the other two. We decided we'd hit Aspen and Hayden and then see if we were up for the big one.

This turned out to be a beautiful area with only a handful of hikers on a Saturday. I enjoyed Aspen quite a bit-- the trail was nice and views were great. We then came back down to do Hayden. Hayden is all road but there are some nice patches of aspens along the way. Just ignore the trespassing sign and crawl under the gate to access the road to the top :D There's a bunch of stuff up there-- weird buildings and antennas all just kind of concreted all over the rocky top.

After getting back to the bottom, we decided we'd go for Hualapai Peak. I'm glad we did-- it was a nice steep walk. The very top is a scramble so Chumley went up first while I waited with Lily. Then once he got down, I headed up. The summit was covered with huge blankets of ladybugs and I think I accidentally stepped on more than I was comfortable with :?

He headed back down and finished the loop. I had not been planning on a 4K day but it was well worth it. We left the park and headed down Ridge Road to find a spot to camp. That's one heck of a road but we found a nice spot.
