Charleston Lead Mine Peak & Peak 4728
December 19, 2023

Peak 4505, Charleston Lead Mine Peak

Summit of the peak, looking over at Peak 4628. The white haze is smoke from a field fire

Looking east, Tombstone Hills, my car down there

Peak 4628 is the third bump from the left, in the back

Hiking along San Pedro Trail, a view of Charleston Lead Mine Peak

Peak 4628, the saddle below, and the pointy brush between me and it

At the saddle, looking up at the rocky summit

The summit and its rocks

Northwest view, the Whetstone Mountains and the San Pedro River. Two weeks ago, all those trees were a bright orange

Southwest, the Huachuca Mountains, and the source of all that smoke

South: the lower peak, then Brunckow Hill (the pointier hill) and way in back Cerro San Jose in Mexico

Inch-long thorns of the whitethorn acacia. This stuff was everywhere
