Short but sweet. Perfect weather. Perfect day. Pristine Sonoran desert. Very green with all the recent rain. I saw this on the way home from Tucson to AJ and knew I needed to climb it someday. Saturday was that day. Rough terrain with some fun scrambling near the top. But nothing too crazy. Saw lots of birds. A couple black vultures looming over the summit, many swallows zipping by, and several crows amongst others. Unfortunately no bighorn sightings. 🙁
I made a short motion lapse video of the rolling clouds that’s posted on YouTube: [ youtube video ]
High clearance vehicle recommended for last mile or so of drive. But 4 wheel drive is not necessary.
