Limestone Mountain
January 17, 2024

Limestone Mountain as seen from Rucker Road at dawn

A view of the peak and the ridges. I went up the one at left in the sun, which then curves west for the summit roughly in the center

Starting my walk, aiming for the lowest slope ahead

About halfway up, a view of the rest of the ridge

Another view

The steepest segment, but it wasn't bad at all

The last slope, summit ahead, but it's still set behind a little bit from this vantage

The summit. The actual cairn is about 10 feet away hidden by all this brush

Not sure what this thing is (top left), a view north from the wooded summit, the summit cairn, and a mine shaft about halfway up on the ridge. It's not capped and it would be real easy to fall in

Now walking down, a view east. The distant peaks are in New Mexico

Lower down, more open views to the north, peaks in the Chiricahua range

Limestone Peak as I exit
