Picketpost Mountain
November 11, 2015

Magnificent Picketpost Mountain as seen from the trailhead

Hiking the lower trail, looking back to see Superstition Mountain and Weaver's Needle

Now closer, the ascent gully is now visible

This part is a mix of scant trail and easy rock scrambles

Looking down at the ascent ridge

Almost within the gully, this rock prow is a notable landmark

Higher in the canyon, the upper headwall comes into view

From the top: view east at Superior and the Apache Leap

View of Pinal Peak, looking east and south a little

Northwest view of Superstition Mountain and Weaver's Needle

The mailbox and bench

Stick Scott leans up against the mailbox
