2012-01-31 - Peak 3306 - The Thumb   56 Photos   Jan 30, 2012
 
We planned to hike 3 miles north on the Arizona Trail #16 before turning east to climb Peak 3348. But an ancient 'road' around the base of Peak 3306 caught our attention and the plan became a counter-clockwise circumnavigation of Peak 3306, or what I refer to as 'The Thumb'.

2012-01-24 - Pass Mountain Ridgeline   40 Photos   Jan 24, 2012
 
This hike included plenty of steep and treacherous ground but with extra care and focusing on one-step-at-a-time we made it without incident. And even though many of the views over populated areas, they are still awesome!

2012-01-23 - Hiking up a remote canyon   79 Photos   Jan 23, 2012
 
First I did a short hike along a ridge above a canyon I had spotted last year. Then I drove down to the mouth of the canyon and hiked along the floor all the way up to the source.

2012-01-21 - White Canyon Wilderness   141 Photos   Jan 21, 2012
 
I'd already hiked White Canyon twice so for something different I came in from the east and climbed to the ridge above the east side of White Canyon, then followed it all the way south before returning via a lower (and more treacherous) route.

2012-01-17 - Sierra Ancha - Parker Cliffs   95 Photos   Jan 17, 2012
 
Starting out on the 'Desert to Pines' Young Highway, we spent a day driving on some rough and sometimes scary 'old Jeep-trails' to remote areas where we hiked from. We were rewarded by spectacular views of the southwestern Sierra Ancha, Roosevelt Lake blanketed in fog/low clouds and Four Peaks. We also located another ancient Native American ruin site.

2012-01-13 - Silver Bell/Columbia/Martinez Mines hike   214 Photos   Jan 13, 2012
 
This photo gallery covers the whole gamut...
A long rough drive, steep mountain climbs by vehicle as well as on foot, wandering over hill and dale, topping a few peaks, exploring a few mines, a long, steep mountain descent, boulder-hopping, another steep climb back to the car and of course the long rough road out again.
