1st trip
Chiricahua Peak has been on my bucket list for a while, so I decided to finally hike it, and also went up to Flys Peak along the way.

We started and ended this hike at the Rustler Park TH.

I got turned around a bit at the start trying to take a shortcut to the Crest Trail, but we eventually got on track.

I was pleasantly surprised at what good shape the Crest Trail was in; ditto for the trails up and down the 2 peaks.

The views along the Crest Trail were fantastic, which made for a great hike. Both summits were nice, although there were a good many trees at the top which prevented having 360 degree views.

This hike is a keeper, and I plan to go back again. Snowshed Peak is still on my peakbagging list, so I will add it next time.

there was a bit of moisture on the ground around the pipe coming from the spring, but no water was dripping out of the pipe
