1st trip
during our pinal hike three weeks ago, it came up that miller peak was on my wish list
linda just hit miller a few weeks ago, but she didn't get carr peak at the time
the combo was on
left town at 0430 and were hiking shortly after 0730
miller canyon features flowing water with maples leafing out nicely
a solid ascent of 3,000 feet in four miles
took a short break at bathtub spring, then headed for miller peak
this section of the crest trail is beautiful
ponderosa and aspen, views on both sides of the ridgeline, pine needle covered trail :)
another uphill to miller peak
saw seven other people on this section of trail and only two others as we started out in miller canyon
nice views of the huachuca range, surrounding sky islands, sierra vista and into mexico
took a break then went back to pick up carr peak trail
more open terrain on this part
i had been on carr several years ago with @rwstorm and it was nice to be up here again
better views to the north and west and into miller canyon
took a longer lunch break and enjoyed the perfect day
the descent passed quickly on good trail with plenty of shade and some high clouds
good mileage and elevation gain on this worthy combo
headed back with some car snacks
thanks for driving, linda, and for being willing to come up here again so soon
it's a great hike
*using linda's mileage as my phone doesn't seem to record enough points to capture all the switchbacks
