2014-07-10 - Peak 2545 Summit Hike   107 Photos   Jul 10, 2014
 
A 3-1/2 hour 3.7 mile 1,158' AEG hike to the summit of Peak 2545. In search of a large cave, I descended a drainage toward the Salt River until stopped by slick-rock slots. Next I ascended Peak 2545 via the western slope, crossed the summit then looped back along FR1827. The only drama today was being stung twice by the same hornet.
 
2014-07-07 - Lower First Water Creek   56 Photos   Jul 7, 2014
 
A 70 minute 2.5 mile 656' AEG exploration hike along Lower First Water Creek. Another high humidity day so I kept it short, completing it before the temperature reached 100°. Although throughly drenched in sweat like the hike three days ago, I only lost 2.5 pounds today.

A 2 hour 45 minute 2.6 mile 1,168' AEG hike to a nice overlook on 'The Point' Recreation Area across Canyon Lake. Although an abbreviated hike the high humidity made it absolutely brutal. Less than halfway I was soaked from head to toe in sweat, losing over 4 pounds despite drinking a half gallon of fluids.

A 7 hour 41 minute 8.4 mile 2,743' AEG hike to the summit of Peak 3042 in the Mormon Flat Dam Quadrangle along the Salt River. On the return leg I took a 101 minute 1.6 mile detour hoping to reach the point just below my end point on my hike 4 days ago. I was stopped by a pour-off about a half-mile short. :-(

A 90-minute 7.4 mile 900' AEG mountain bike ride in the San Tan Mountain Regional Park near Queen Creek. We rode a clockwise loop following first the San Tan Trail until reaching the Little Leaf Trail, which we followed back to the trailhead.
 
2014-06-01 - Peak 3042 Recon hike   75 Photos   Jun 1, 2014
 
A 3.5 hour 3.2 mile 1,140' AEG recon hike to find the most direct route to the summit of Peak 3042. About 120' above the canyon floor and I was stumped. On the return leg I checked out another route but it was much worse. If I am to summit Peak 3042 it will be a longer route from the east.
