I planned this - ‘Five Little Horns’ - hike, over a year ago, and never got around to it.
(OH …. so many hikes and so little time).
Well, I did the hike now, and I’m glad I did. It was alot of fun.

The remote, Little Horn Mountain Range, stretches for about 15 miles in a northwest-southeast direction and straddles La Paz and Yuma counties. The Kofas are just west while the Eagletails are just east.

I made a loop out of it, since I had to use a few mountain ridges to locate things. The hike consisted of going up basalt boulders, then leisurely moving across a wide ridge to the summit. After leaving the summit, I traversed a perpendicular ridge to get to a third ridge, where I located the azimuth mark for Little Horn Benchmark.

Locating the azimuth mark, as usual, was a challenge. Alot of it depends on comprehending the surveyors’ information on the benchmark’s datasheet. This time, their wording made me ‘draw a map’ to figure out what they meant. After that, I easily located the azimuth mark, in one of the billions of basalt boulders up there.

This whole desert area, south of I-10 and north of I-8, is getting addictive. Very pleasant hiking.
