Recently JJ and I were atop Picketpost with JJ pointing out Montezuma Peak in the Sierra Estrella. A plan was born.

October rains have made the drive to the trailhead excessively rough. The JJmobile passed with flying colors though. Looking at the peak on the drive in it is apparent that this hike gets very steep. JJ and I hiked this one a few years ago, but the memories had faded a bit. I didn't recall how steep this one gets. Great thing about Sierra Estrella hikes is that the steep washes aren't too brushy, see very little traffic, and the scenery is awesome. Good stuff!

Fun hike. Joe's performance was inspirational as was JJ's patience. Kelly and I got in some bonus sight seeing as we missed the turnoff to the mine and jeep on the descent. Great day! Thanks all. :)
