Perfect fall weather and a map made this a piece of cake today. People were in the area, but there were no other real hikers out. I saw 3 or 4 sheep, or more, near the summit, in the saddle, and then above the saddle, so this was a pretty cool hike. A perfect winter hike!

Actually, it is still fall, but the sun says winter, and except for the humidity/ dew point being unusually high the sun angle is low and the air was clear and calm. It was also in the low to middle 80s, so 10 to 20 degrees too warm for winter, but I loved it all the same.

Great summit views. I was able to see Castle Dome Peak, which is neat. It seems that aside from a few other summits, most mountains west of the Phoenix periphery ranges are not that high. There are a lot of small hills, some very rugged, and many maybe inaccessible, but aside from maybe a 1/2 dozen big summits, there aren't really many large mountains between the coastal ranges, and Phoenix, in the swath visible from Saddle MT. A few summits in the Kofa, this, Woolsey, Big Horn, Harquahala, and what else? Just a thought.
