Maricopa Mountains Highpoint
February 24, 2019

Maricopa Mountain as seen from far away, near highway 238

A mile or so closer, still far away

Now closer in, to the peak's northeast

Now starting up the lower ridge

The summit ridge and the rocky pinnacle

Now on the main east ridge, looking up at the top

Closing in on the top

Almost there

South view, the Javelina Mountains and Maricopa Peak, plus Big Horn Benchmark toward the near right

Southeast view, Table Top (with snow) in the distance

Other summit bump to the north

View of the probable true summit, as seen from the north bump

That rock pinnacle

Me, the pinnacle, and zooms of Maricopa Peak and Table Top with rare snow on top

Hiking out through big saguaro and poppies
