The Angle Orchard has a a couple more weeks left and I wanted to pick a few more apples. It was also a pretty good day to hike this. Lots of yellow on the mountain while driving up. Very windy, however, and rather chilly with a cold front coming through.

After Heliograph from Arcadia in June, I pretty much came to the range to pick fruit every time I was here this summer. While I only did shorter hikes after my orchard visit, I still feel I got a good feel for the range. Perhaps, in the future I should try Lady Bug Peak from the Lady Bug trail, but that isn't really a summer hike in my opinion. After hiking this road to the top today, I have come to the conclusion that Heliograph Peak from Shannon Camp, loop or not, is probably the best hike or summit in the range for summer.

Views were nice today, but that wind was fierce. It still managed to be humid, too.

Aspen in the Pinalenos are going to peak in the next week, if they aren't blown off the trees.
