Living in Phoenix all my life, and staring at this mountain range as I drive by, and wondering, I finally made it here! I'm glad I did! It's a truly magnificent and awe-inspiring place. Close to busy Phoenix, yet so remote. Thanks to my friend with knowledge of the hike and a better vehicle than mine, this journey was able to happen. Thanks Cara and Sandy!
This trail reminds me of Piestawa/Squaw Peak on steroids, minus the crowds.
Not much in the way of wildlife today, except some big buzzards flying overhead. I've heard of bighorn sheep sightings here, didn't see any. Some wildflowers were present. The big show was the quartz rock littered all over the place. It was truly awesome!The summit was great, like nothing I've seen before. And the views of Phoenix were great too! Great hike! I'll be back!
