2012-06-07 - Bagley Tank to Saguaro Lake   53 Photos   Jun 7, 2012
 
Planned a 2 hour, 4-mile hike from Bagley Tank to Saguaro Lake and back. With huge boulders blocking the canyon in a number of spots the hike was significantly more difficult than expected, but the beauty made it worthwhile.

After climbing Apache Peak 6940 last week I couldn't wait to return for an 8-peak 'Northern Summits' loop. Eight was a bit too ambitious so I settled for five.

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.
