This was my first completely off trail, solo adventure since I got sick on February 15th. It was just like riding a bike, LOL. I did fine, wasn't really tired and could have done another 5-8 miles, easily. Was 70 degrees at the TH and 86 when I got back to the car at 9:30.

On a bad note, Route Scout didn't work so I'm estimating my miles and AEG. Oh well. 2219 is a typical Phoenix off-trail peak. Just difficult enough to be moderately fun. You're skiing down on ankle breakers, the medium rocks that I hate.

The foxtails were knee high so every stick was a snake.

Looking over at Saddleback you can see multiple routes and its a pretty cool looking peak but the true interesting peak is Peak 2210 next to 2219. I tried to assess a route up that wouldn't get me killed for next time.

Saw a humongous jackrabbit but not one snake. A vulture flew over me so close I could almost touch it.
