1st trip
got an invite from linda to hike 3465 and a couple of other peaks nearby
really liked 3465 when i hiked it with johnlp a few years ago
just don't get over this way very often
we got going before sunrise
nice enough temps, a little damp due to overnight rains
some nice clouds over lake pleasant and the bradshaw mountains
walkin' jim to big jim and up to 3465
great views from there
dropped back down then took a faint use trail to a wash, then a ridgeline to the saddle between pikes and mill
headed first to pikes and checked out summit views and the memorial
back to the saddle then northeast to mill
nice little scramble to get up the last little bit
too bad we didn't know there was a benchmark up there
easy off trail up high
took a lunch break after mill
linda found her original route back down
much better footing and an easier grade
she also let me use one of her hiking poles which made a big difference on the descent - thank you!
finished out the loop with one little shortcut
nice day, good company and two new peaks!
needed to reclaim some off trail credibility :lol:
using linda's stats, although mine are close
