What an awesome hike, a winter ascent of Mount Ord. We hit some remnant snow about 6000 feet. AMAZING Views. You can see Humphrey's from the summit very well. Was about 30 degrees at the summit with AT LEAST 35 MPH winds. Didn't stay long! I wolfed down a sandwich and down we went. Saw many hunters and a few drive ups. AWESOME day!

Another time through Fatman's Pass and the cave on the Mormon Trail. A LOT of bees...

Out to what I have dubbed Jason's pole and back on the 100 trail.

Really nice hike summiting Peak 3465 in the Hieroglyphic Mtns. Saw about 10 wild burro this time. Signed the summit log.

So my favorite 'easy' Valley hike was populated with several 'Bro Culture' acolytes on mountain bikes, a lady talking so loud on her cell phone I could hear her from an adjacent ridge, and a HS couple of lovebirds that were letting their dogs pumpkin all over the trail. I added the Ridgeline hike to the Deem Hills summit for some extra AEG.

Still, being outside for 2.5 hours hiking is awesome, no matter what, IMO.

A very nice maintenance hike with SpiderLegs on the Charles Christiansen #100 trail. Temp never got above freezing and we started at 6 AM. About half the hike in the dark. Enjoyable hike!

My first dud of a trip... Almost all of this hike is off trail/ bushwhacking. I was really unable to figure out the CCW way of the theoretical trail. We ended up just exploring and wash walking. Still nothing beats being outside. This area is beautiful and just wish there were more trail indication. I realize that ymmv and some might like it better this way.

Really awesome hike today with SpiderLegs out peakbagging Harquahala Peak. Saw one lone bleating burro. Several HAZers were there yesterday. Gorgeous weather and good times. Almost no exposure. Fun hike!

Kind of a blah mood today. Combined the Christiansen Trail with my second Shaw Butte summit. Meh.

One of the more slightly challenging circumference (not summitting) trails that you will encounter in the central Valley. I did it CCW and you get the most difficult climb early on in the hike. The initial climb is probably equivalent to about 1/2 of the actual Piestewa summit, IMO. A good choice if you are nearby but don't want to deal with the crowds. Only one bluetooth rap speaker on the way down...

I love the smell of burro poo in the morning, said everyone that's ever done this trail! Saw about 20 burros, a tarantula, a coyote and several red tailed hawks.

I did however learn a valuable lesson today. If you only have HAZ and the cairns PAY attention to the cairns. My cell went dead with about 3.5 miles left and though I was never in any danger and knew which direction to bushwhack, in another situation it could have been bad.

Nice trail with a pretty nice climb to the x1831 hill/mtn along Cholla. Finished with the Coach Whip Trail back to the TH.

Decided to bag this hill/mtn as well. Due west of the amphitheatre to the left of the parking area. Why not? :y:

Went about half way to Tatum and then back. Two somewhat decent climbs, otherwise pretty flat. Would be good to test gear, take dogs and youngsters...

Sort of a Thanksgiving truncated Perl Charles 1A route. Somehow I got onto another trail, though it was unmarked. The climb was MUCH steeper than the Perl Charles 1A route. I linked back up with 1A on the back side of the route. Sort of cut across, I guess.

When 5 mile 1000 AEG hikes start to feel like a warm up, you know you are getting there...

Happy Thanksgiving.

Not even a hiking trip, an epic journey. We took Siphon Draw, walked over to Flatiron, Superstition Ridgeline to Superstition Peak 5057, down(and up) and down and up some more, Peralta Canyon trail and finally ended at the Carney Trailhead to the South. It took about 10 hours total time, was over 12 miles and the absolute hardest thing I've ever done in my life.

There are near vertical portions, exposure and portions that really are probably more than vertical that you have to swing up and over. No kids, no dogs, not for the faint of heart.

Not bad for a farm boy from Alabama and a recent flat land transplant from the Florida suburbs...

I may never do this trail sequence again, but I will also NEVER forget this epic day.

Very well maintained trail in the Deem Hills. The opening view about .5 miles into the trail is stunningly beautiful. Would be a good place to test new gear, load your pack, introduce others to hiking, etc.

Very nice trail at South Mountain. I really enjoyed the parts with the bouldering and the tight squeezes. There was a group of middle schoolers and ordinarily I wouldn't like their racket, but at least perhaps some of them will want to keep enjoying hiking and nature instead of video games and texting...
