I've wanted to do Quartz for a long time. JJ, Kelly, and Linda had offered to take me since the Flying Focus won't make it. What the heck, lets all go in the flying Jeep . Great group.
Chit chatting made the climb go fast and we were on Quartz in no time. Cool summit. JJ said Butterfly is just a few more minutes so we might as well do it too. The off trail section to the two Butterflies is a little brushy in sections and I think we all lost a little blood. The first wing has one iffy section that I wouldn't do by myself but with the crew's guidance I made it. The second wing was a little more doable. It was nice to get all three of these in. The hike back seemed longer and it got a little warm by the time we finished. JJ took us to a nice Taco Place in Maricopa to refuel. MmMm it hit the spot. They even had a horse .
Some great views on this hike. Throw in some great driving (JJ) and great company and it made for a great outing. Thanks to all.
