2013-07-23 - Five Points Benchmark summit hike   34 Photos   Jul 23, 2013
 
A 3+ hour 1-3/4 mile 1,000' AEG hike to the summit of Point #4 which is the Benchmark summit of 'Five Points' in the Pinal Ranch Quadrangle. This was a brutal climb up, over and around everything from thick Manzanita, holly, cat's-claw, agave, sawtooth cactus and 'shin-daggers' to 20' boulders, thus the half-mile per hour average. But the view was awesome and well worth the effort.

2013-07-13 - Sunset at Large Rock   37 Photos   Jul 13, 2013
 
Camped near 'Large Rock' on Mount Graham we were treated to a beautiful sunset not long before thunderstorms rolled in. I tried to limit the photoset to the best ones but how do you decide which are 'the best' photos when they all have their unique appeal?

2013-07-09 - Peak 2733 summit hike   57 Photos   Jul 9, 2013
 
2 hour 2 mile 900' AEG hike to the summit of Peak 2733 in the Maverick Mountain Quadrangle. Another tough and sweaty climb, topping out at 105 degrees.
 
2013-07-04 - Peak 2140 summit hike   72 Photos   Jul 4, 2013
 
A 3.5 hour 5.4 mile 975' AEG hike to the summit of Peak 2140 in the Stewart Mountain Quadrangle. I started with 88° and 35% humidity and finished at 101° with 25% humidity so even drinking 132 ounces I still lost 6.5 pounds (almost a gallon of sweat) over the course of the hike. Being soaked in sweat from head to toe it was just a bit oppressive.

A 3 hour 5.25 mile 700' AEG loop hike through Pivot Rock Canyon.
 
2013-06-27 - Four Wheeling in the Sierra Ancha   57 Photos   Jun 27, 2013
 
Spending a day doing 4x4 recon in preparation for future hikes in the Sierra Ancha. The 3+ hours driving 150 miles on paved roads were nothing compared to the 9 hours 127 miles and 17,000' AEG spent on un-paved roads. The 13 mph average speed belies the fact some of the 'roads' were nothing more than single-file cowpaths when I averaged barely 3-4 mph.
 
2013-06-25 - Peak 2211 summit hike   18 Photos   Jun 25, 2013
 
A 4 hour 4 mile 1350' AEG hike to the summit of Peak 2211 in the Stewart Mountain Quadrangle. I planned to bag Peak 2433 on the same hike but I took a hard fall when a rock gave way below me so although I was within a quarter mile of Peak 2433 summit, no longer able to bend my right knee I had to forego it.
