For starters, I gotta thank Ray ( @rayhuston ) for accompanying me on this scenic hike. The Little Four Peaks hike is relatively short but the lack of well defined trails make it a tough one to figure out. We were all over the place hiking along slippery side hills, avoiding Catsclaw, Cholla and rock outcroppings, but finally made it to the saddle between two of the peaks. The views from here are non-stop and amAZing.

This was my third trip up here and one of our goals was to locate the natural rock "Pocket" that contained an assortment of heart-shaped stones, but although we thoroughly searched the saddle area, we were unable to find them, so a little more research is in order. The day had a bit of distant haze and the wind blew across the summit areas but temps were comfortable and the sun was warm.

Ray and I had lots to talk about on the trails and when we finished, we hit the Bluebird restaurant/gift shop across from the Goldfield Ghost Town, for a hamburger and cold beer. Sitting in the sun and more BS'ing. There's a wire fence line up top of the Little Four Peaks and I mentioned it to Louie at the store. That brought some long lost memories back to him and he recalled when he and rancher, John Cox, put that fence in to isolate the cattle from the Superstition Mountain Wilderness Area.

Thanks Ray for another fun, albeit tough, hiking outing. I'm a bit sore today but it was worth the effort to get out with you again..... :y:

Everything's dry and crisp, needing rain.
