I always thought this was just a numbered peak (Peak 2883), but realized today it's actually called Picture Rocks peak, which is a better name.

Met Jim and started hiking around 3:30 pm. This time we parked at the Picture Rock Petroglyphs parking area. Haven't parked at this trailhead before, but it's a good place to start this hike or to enter the wash. I believe I've hiked this small mountain at least 3-4 times previously, but it's been a while since my last summit of this one. On previous hikes of this mountain, I've seen many javelina in the morning hours. I believe I've seen the "sun petroglyph" near the top before. Also found a deer antler about halfway up which is a rare find. The bushwhack really was pretty easy. I believe it wouldn't take a lot of work to make a better cleaner trail.
