Chevelon Butte from our camp area

Chevelon Butte again

Now climbing the gentle slopes

A gate on the newer service road

The road gaining upward

Now on top, the comm. towers can be seen.

The general "summit" area

Surprised I was the first to sign in since 2008

East Sunset Mountain to the northwest

Humphreys Peak way out there

Small cemetery

East Chevelon

View south, the boundary between the forest and ranch properties is well delineated. Our camp is somewhere down there in the trees

Stone walls lie atop East Chevelon, plus benchmark

Montage: the two main comm. towers, contradicting signs, and a shot of East Chevelon
