Peak 6513 - Airway Beacon 22 "Bernardino"
February 4, 2024

Peak 6513 as seen from highway AZ-80, lit by the low rising sun

Seen now from about three miles out

From the side, where the profile does not look so severely steep

About a third of the way up the road

About two-thirds the way up

About 19/20ths the way up

At the towers, the top is still a short scramble away

The airway beacon

View north, the high peaks of the Chiricahuas are covered in snow

Northwest view

West view, the knobby peak is Castle Dome

Close-up of the summit towers and the benchmark

Looking down from the top at the lower towers and the road down the ridge. I'm parked somewhere out in the flats below
