After exploring the remains of the High Peak Trail this afternoon, I still had some daylight left, so I decided upon Webb Peak. I started at the Ash Creek Trailhead and climbed to the top of Webb Peak in 22 minutes via the short segment of trail 345. Temperature on top: 48 degrees and breezy at 5:45 PM. Took a few shots from the fire tower, then headed down the Webb Peak Road. The sun was setting on the hike down, and shafts of blood red light shone through the trees, illuminating the few changing aspens and golden brown bracken ferns. Got back to the trailhead at dusk. Tonights animal sightings on the drive down were a skunk, a trio of foxes, and a sickly javelina. Another excellent day in the Pinalenos!
