I had a long week, worked 6 days in a row, and had a hike planes in the Superstitions. On the drive out there I decided I was feeling too lazy to enjoy it and started thinking about where else I could go. As I drove past "9AL peak" I decided today was the day to do it. The trail/road is pretty washed out in some places, and although short, its steep. Took me 11 minutes to get to the highest point. I did my beast to walk around all the areas to log the most mileage since it was .45 or so to the top. Once I got to the bottom I found a short trail that worked around the base, I followed it for a while, but it just dumped out to the open area to the west of the butte. I actually liked this and wish the city would have bought this land and did something with it instead of that nub on Recker. Looks like there are apartments or something right next to the CVS so this land here is shrinking.

Ok old man story time here...
I have been up this little mountain before, you see back when I was in high school, you could drive up to the top. The antenna or whatever it was was still there at that time. I remember having a video from that day, I found the video pretty quickly, but trying to hook up a VCR to one of my TVs is a different story. I'm including some pictures from that day over 20 years ago so hopefully someone will enjoy them. Oh and I did it real high tech like, phone pictures of my tv screen!
