2013-09-09 - Peak 2749 summit hike   116 Photos   Sep 9, 2013
 
A 2-1/2 hour 3 mile 900' AEG hike to the summit of Peak 2749 in the Mormon Flat Dam Quadrangle. So much more to see and do but with the intermittent drizzle giving way to heavy rain I was more concerned about road washouts on the way home and cut it short. As it was, I passed numerous rock-falls and was held up for 90 minutes by a series of washes running across Apache Trail.
 
2013-09-05 - Peak 2811 recon hike   62 Photos   Sep 5, 2013
 
A 4 hour 40 minute 3.2 mile 1,357' AEG hike to the Peak 2811 saddle. I'd forgotten my PB&J sandwich and energy bars, already drank more than half my fluid and terrain was so bad I was way behind schedule. So when it appeared the last 200 vertical feet would take 30-40 minutes I decided to abort the summit attempt and return another day... when the humidity and temperature are lower.
 
2013-09-02 - Peak 2780 summit hike   75 Photos   Sep 2, 2013
 
A 5 hour 45 minute 7.5 mile 1,200' AEG hike to the summit of Peak 2780 in the Mormon Flat Dam Quadrangle. Another super-humid day and I went through two 3 liter CamelBak bladders. I knew I being followed early on but only found it was a mountain lion when I spotted the tracks on my return trip. It had turned off when I hit the long, steep slope to the summit. So I turned the tables and followed it's tracks until it veered well off my intended route. I saw two foxes but only got a few photos of one. Another tough but enjoyable day of hiking.

A 1-1/2 hour .8 mile 612' AEG hike to the summit of Peak 2580 in the Mormon Flat Dam Quadrangle. Afterward I took another 2-1/2 hour 2.5 mile 600' AEG recon hike for a future peak bagging hike. With a high temp of 102° and humidity in the 65-70% range it was an oppressive day for hiking.

A 2-1/2 hour 2.7 mile 900' AEG hike to the summit of Peak 2980, one of the 'Little Four Peaks' in the Mormon Flat Dam Quadrangle. The first part of the hike I was doing recon in preparation for climbing two peaks on the other side of First Water Creek.
