A nice 900 foot climb in 2.5 miles through some amazing meadows and forest to an incredible overlook.

My trusty super hiker (who soon turns 70 years young) had a date to install a water softener back in Tucson but did this climb in nearly nearly 45 minutes each way while I continued onward to the high perch.

Had to abort Friday evenings snowshoe trek up Mt Ord as snow was too fresh/powdery with zero float. After aborting I took a scenic drive up through Payson which was a ghost town (snow emergency) and up to nearly Kohls Ranch b/4 returning to the Valley.

Luckily they needed to service the equipment atop Ord so the snowcat left a pretty firm surface behind for my return trek on Sunday afternoon.

Unfortunately, I should left the snowshoes behind in car instead of leaving them hidden in the snow--as when I returned my Orange MSR Lightning Ascents were nowhere. ( looked everywhere just in case my GPS & memory were playing tricks on me )

Got passed after mile 5 by a very cold trail runner but other than that (plus the snowshoe fail) it was a good hike with some record snowfall.
