I drove out to check out the wildflowers on Peridot Mesa, but made a wrong turn. ;)

The drive is almost more of a challenge than the hike. I'll add info on that later.

You can no longer buy permits at Circle K or the Bashas.

Downed trees block the road almost a mile before it ends, but I don't think previous hikers drove to the end anyway.

The route is well-constructed and easy to follow. I had to fight some deep snowdrifts, but it didn't slow me down too much. The off-trail traverse across the top is overgrown and thick. Stay on the north side and you'll find an easy class-3 chute that gets you up to the summit.

It was pretty hazy today. But this is such a central spot that landmarks from the White Mountains to the Pinalenos, Galiuros, Teresas, Rincons, Catalinas, Pinals, Ancha, Newman, Four Peaks, among others ... were all visible. It was nice to finally see the reverse view from this peak to all those others! :)
