Johnny Lyon Hills Highpoint
February 24, 2024

Johnny Lyon Hill makes its first appearance as we hiked up the road

Closer, the highpoint is not visible, being to the left and in back. We ascended to the saddle roughly in the center

On the slopes up to the saddle

Now on the ridge, it's slopey-slabby on this eastern side

Summit up ahead

Approaching the highest rocks

Summit and cairn, and Peak 5720 (5734) in back

I hiked to the far north end of the ridge and took a photo looking back at Matthias at the summit

North view, the San Pedro River valley, and the Galiuro Mountains in back

Rincon and Mica peaks in back, the Little Rincons in front

Southeast view, Mae West Peak and the Little Dragoons

Hiking down the ridge

Look back up at the mountain from the drainage we exited
