2012-05-29 - Apache Peaks hike   69 Photos   May 29, 2012
 
For my first ascent among the half-dozen 'Apache Peaks' I chose the highest, which is 6940 feet in elevation. With a summit & two false summits some distance apart I never thought the climb would end. But it did, yielding a fabulous scenic view.

A cool Memorial Day weekend was the perfect setting for this very steep climb. The highlights included being cliffed out forcing a backtrack, a silent rattlesnake and the incessant fox-tail grass... worse than ongoing mosquito bites.
