It was Horace Greeley who once said "Go west young man"! With that in mind, Tracie, my intrepid hiking partner, and I decided to venture to the West Valley and hike up to Peak 3465.

We followed the Walkin' Jim Trail in a counterclockwise direction, and we took the Big Jim Trail to and from the summit of Peak 3465. The hike was mostly through typical desert vegetation, and the views at the top were pretty cool. The trails were mostly easy to follow, but I was glad that I had downloaded the GPS track for the official route.

At the top I signed the log book, and noticed that hikerdw had signed it about 3 weeks prior.

On the hike we saw 6 wild burros, one rabbit, and no humans -- that ratio was pretty good imho!

I was hoping to see some wildflowers, but there were none, save for some flowering ocotillos
