Peak 2283 Gila Bend Mountains
March 4, 2023

Peak 2283 as seen on the drive in

Now viewed from the south as I start hiking, its long west-trending ridge visible

At the toe of the ridge

There is one steep bit with low cliffs but it was not difficult

The home stretch to the top

Look down what I'd just come up

The summit! Woolsey Peak in back

Northeast view, cool peak closer in, the Buckeye Hills in back

View north at the Palo Verde Nuclear Cloud Factory

Peak 2137, to the southeast

Nose Benchmark Peak, cholla, and morning glare

View southwest of the canyon I walked in on. My car is the tiny speck out there

Neat rock formation

The peak as I drive out
