With the clear skies I was not about to just hike in the preserves in town today, and with limited time this was a great choice. The air around the valley is noticeably brown and filthy, but getting out past Tonopah it is much cleaner. On the summit looking east, some ranges like the Estrellas appeared to be poking up above the pollution.

Another nice hike on Big Horn. The old log is gone, replaced by one that has no older registers than Joe and John. I'm not sure why more people don't do this one, as access is pretty easy and it is a great desert summit. Stick to the Superstitions if you must, the desert is emptier for me!

I expected a breeze, I found it calm on the summit with only a light breeze on the slope. It was warm, but not hot. However, pushing 90 at this time of year is getting there. All in all, a fantastic hike and scramble for late November.
