Another research and elevation training trip in the Catalinas. Really liking this area and the drive down isnt even that bad, either. Wanting to explore some new areas, I brought Sanchez with me this time. Right when we parked the Jeep near the Red Ridge trailhead, we saw several deer so we knew it was going to be a great hike. We started down the Oracle Ridge trail where the views were great due to the high visibility of the day. I am always so surprised how lush the Catalinas can be. We started bear singing just in case. Sanchez had no interest in hitting the Pinal high point, though we were so close, so we just went down the hill at the saddle and to the old camp. Not sure how long ago there were operations here, but there was a lot of equipment down there. The cabin was in good shape and it had some cool features, like a sun deck, a BBQ grill, and even a squatter. The hike up Red Ridge was fairly smooth as it was a long hike back up to the top so the grade was easy going. Seems like there is a lot more to explore out here.. would like to do the whole front range soon.
