got an invite to hike mount ajo with linda
a favorite from a trip to organ pipe almost five years ago
great scenery, interesting terrain, a nice uphill and good views at the summit
just a little too long to drive for an eight mile day hike
we left town at 0530 and were hiking at 0830
weather was perfect all day
moderate grade except for the short, steep scree section, then a scenic stroll along the upper ridgeline and a short easy scramble to the top
took a break at the summit - great clouds and views
linda kindly let me use one of her poles (again) at the scree part, which wasn't as bad as i anticipated
we started seeing more people lower down, including one guy with an annoying drone
i liked this hike as much as the first time
nice to tag along for linda's 100th peak of 2020 - quite an accomplishment given 2020 events
thanks, linda!
