I enjoy hiking to Geronimo Head so I opted to go outside on Black Friday and hike this one again.

We started and ended the hike at the Tortilla Flat TH.

There is a nice trail up to Fragile Arch Saddle, and a decent trail up to the 2750 Saddle. It is all off-trail past that point though.

On the way to Geronimo Head, we went up to a ridgeline that has some good views of Battleship Mountain. There is fairly large burn area from the fires this past summer. With all of the vegetation gone it made walking easier. As usual, there are great views of Battleship down below and of the surrounding area.

We hung out at Geronimo Head for awhile and also stopped for a few minutes at Peak 3509 on the way back.

We saw 3 big horn sheep in the burn area, and saw them again on the way back. They weren't at all skittish of us, and they were camera hogs -- one big ram got bored and laid down while he was staring at us.

It was a great day for a hike!

I did not see any water down in Peters Canyon, or in the wash that we were in on the way back.
