Parked at the Wolverine Pass Gate across from the inhabitants of a mini school bus .Started the FR 10 road walk portion then FR 1356 until crossing the Bulldog Canyon Wash , next the ATV road to reach the “trailhead” ,if you have the gate code that is! First a little workout to the saddle noting a few red arrows on the way then the steep work out portion to the peak, all the while the energizer bunny was nipping at my heels and I could sense the eye rolls with suggestions to upgrade my Dad jokes :? . From previous trips had recalled seeing the broken up plastic register container so I brought up an ammo can to replace the now glass container took a couple of minutes to sign the register and then placed it in the summit cairn. We paused here for a snack and to admire the views and the @adenium geocache. About the time we were ready to leave 4 others arrived but they sequestered on the north end of the summit. Linda patiently admired ,from a safe distance behind , my slip , sliding and nimble descent down the ball bearing summit path. When back to the saddle we decided to burn a few more calories and head up to peak 3134. Easy to follow cairned path with much less little loose rock than we just encountered encouraged us to continue. A nice multi arm Saguaro greeted us on reaching the ridgeline but I forgot to get a picture on the way down, Linda looked in the glass jar register at the summit cairn but I don’t think she signed in. Calorie burn accomplished we headed back down , trip from the saddle back to the ATV road went quickly, for me anyway, as I regaled Linda with tales from my Navy days of yore since she was unable to nod off. Along the road walk back experienced only mild dust dispersion from an ATV, a dirt bike and dust devil that passed us by. One of us thought the temps were good today. Thanks @LindaAnn for another enjoyable hike, appreciate you :D
