Peak 3540 is the fourth and final summit I reached today. The ascent from the west was steep but relatively easy, whereas the descent on the eastern slope was VERY steep made even more treaceherous by the loose rock.

Peak 4020 is the third of four summits I'll reach today. This climb the longest yet easiest terrain to traverse. Although all four summits provided awesome scenery, the views from Peak 40420 were my favorites.

Peak 4141 is the second of four summits I'll reach today. This climb was shorter but steeper than the first, yet yielding scenery every bit as beautiful.

Peak 4140 will be the first of four summits I'll reach today. Again I started with what I thought would be the easiest. A boulder slide stirring up a hive of bees made it a bit less enjoyable that anticipated, but I survived.

Peak 3670 was the third and final summit for today. I left the hardest one for last, which seemed to be fitting since the temperature was now 108 degrees. But with a stiff breeze and low humidity I felt great.

Peak 3660 is the second of the three climbs I will do today. This was to be the second-hardest climb of the day and it was already 105 degrees before I began. Still, it seemed more pleasant than the first climb today.

First climb of another three-summit day in the Mineral Mountain Quadrangle. With another scorcher forecast, I began the day with Peak 2765, which was the shortest and easiest climb.

My third and final ascent of the day. Although 106 degrees by now, the humidity was very low so I was far more comfortable than during the first climb of the day when it was 90 degrees with 48% humidity.

The second of three summits I'll successfully reach today was just a series of steep ups-and-downs all the way.

This was the first climb of another three-summit day of peak bagging. It was already 90 degrees when I began before 6 am and with 48% humidity the conditions were quite oppressive!
