Red Mountain (Coconino Plateau)
August 6, 2011

Red Mountain and its eroded inner canyon

The open cider slopes up the east ridge

Looking back at the barren cinder hill, elevation 7,460+ feet

Fascinating hoodoos

More hoodoos and some of my route (in the trees)

Interesting "caprock" eroded hoodoos called rock tents

The 7,965-foot summit

The northern summit area

Fun slopes coming down.
