I got an early morning start on this one. I was on trail by 5am which meant plenty of solitude and darkness to be had. Being out in the Superstitions alone, in conditions like this, is both amazing and occasionally terrifying. I managed to catch a glimpse of a couple meteors from the shower.

The trail was somewhat overgrown, more so than I've seen out here.

I took a scary spill once off trail and navigating the dry creek bed beneath Palomino. The damage was as follows: bruised my shin and scrapped my elbow.

The final push up Palomino reminds me a lot of the final half of Picketpost. The ground is full of pinball size rock, and footing is at a premium. The mailbox and log are still mia up top.
