Well, it's about time I post a triplog for Mt Wrightson. I think I've hiked this mountain 5 times in the last 5 years. This is one of the more challenging hikes in the area, and one of my favorites that I will probably want to hike again and again. I find myself going back there with new hikers who haven't reached the summit yet. Stop and read the "famous" memorial at Josephine saddle about the boy scouts who died up there in the 1950's I believe. What a tragic story... The first time I hiked to the peak was in March several years ago and there was about an inch of snow on the ground. The following year I hiked it in May and there was no snow at all. This peak is higher than Mt Lemmon so it can easily be 20-25 degrees COLDER than the temp in Tucson. If the high temp is 95 in Tucson, it could be 70 degrees on the peak. If the high temp is 50 in Tucson, it could be 25 degrees on the peak and even colder at night! Some boy scouts built a nice seating area at Baldy saddle facing to the East. It's a great place to take a break and/or eat lunch before heading up to the peak which is another mile ahead.
