Geronimo Trail - Peaks 5212, 5503 & 5583
March 9, 2024

Peak 5212 from the west

Now seen as I hike in

Getting closer, more wildflowers

Summit amid flowers!

Peak 5503 as seen from 5212's top, amid yellowaniums

Southwest view

Hiking to Peak 5503

Nearing the cliffs, I went up that ramp

Above the cliffs, one more slope to go

Large cairn at summit

View east

Looking up the canyon, Peak 5583 is tucked in there

Peak 5583 in its rocky and brushy glory

The summit cliffs and rocks

I'm on the margin of the cliffs and the slopes abutting them

Summit ahead

This is the highpoint rock of 5583. It's about 9 feet high. I stood beside it and jumped and tagged the top

Nearly back to the car. You can see the road continue upward to the pass ahead

At the pass, looking west. Peak 5503 is in the sun, and Peak 5583 is slightly left, darker in color

Looking east, the Animas Mountains

Mormon Battalion Marker (and close up) at the pass, a cool stone ranch building, and the benchmark atop 5503
