Good day for a desert peak. 36 degrees at the start. Overcast lingered throughout and a breeze picked up later in the a.m. So really nice, in other words. The trip up Ford Canyon was a treat, even with no water present. I also enjoyed the short ridge walk on the 'off-trail' section before the road walk on the summit. Terrain switches between rocky drainges, grasslands and saguaro fields. We enjoyed views of the western mountain ranges and a nutrition break up top. We cruised back down on Mesquite Cyn. In the lower reaches, we encountered a handful of friendly hikers out enjoying the trails.
