1st trip
this hike was an attempt to summit golden dome, following routes posted by @chumley and @dixieflyer
two peaks, two arches and a trip down black glass canyon are featured
got an early start and enjoyed the trails to wishbone junction
(i just learned exactly where this is, according to tenny's gps coordinates)
a bit in the wash, then the off trail began
pretty good bushwhack uphill on loose rock, not terrible but time-consuming
vegetation seems a little more overgrown than usual this spring
finally made it to pedestal arch
there is definitely an easier way to get to this point
ray wasn't feeling the peaks, and he wanted to cut the route and meet us near black glass canyon
i wasn't comfortable at all with us splitting up, so we descended from there
upon further review, it might have been nice to cut over to black glass canyon
looks like there is a [ gps route ] for that option
after dropping back down we still had to get back to our trail, so we got to experience an off trail "shortcut" :)
nice day, good company, always fun to be out in the goldfields
i'm gradually learning some of the trail names and landmarks
ray treated us to lunch at the gecko grill in gilbert - thank you!
i had the grilled gecko :lol:
enjoyed meeting rhonda
we'll try again with a different route to pedestal arch, but maybe not this spring
golden dome will still be there
another thought is to take black glass canyon up to 3141, over to golden dome and return the same way
no need to see pedestal arch a third time
kudos to those who completed this loop; it's a good one
nice to be out with ray and john again
