This hike is short but it packs a punch. Great terrain and scenery. We hiked to Elephant Head first, then hit Little Elephant Head on the way back. Both recommended. Some scrambling involved. No worse than Battleship in the Superstitions. Saw what appeared to be a golden eagle!

Temps were moderate, topping out at 83 degrees. With the breeze and sometimes high winds it never felt hot.

JJ made it through the ocotillo gauntlet unscathed! Last time he picked up a souvenir in his finger that didn't work it's way out for about two years. :o

Wonderful day and company. Thanks for driving JJ. :)
