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.

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.

It took 30 minutes to drive the 2.4 miles on Forest Road 3512 to the trailhead. From there is was a 3 hour 15 minute 2.5 mile 1,255' AEG roundtrip hike to the Cottonwood Spring Catchment on another scorcher. At the catchment I got a video of a rattlesnake leaving the tank after getting a drink of water.

All these photos shot from the Billy Lawrence trailhead at the edge of the Sierra Ancha Wilderness. I realize photos can never embody the experience of 'being there' I thought some folks may enjoy it enough to put it on their 'to-do' list.
