Palo Verde Mountain
October 28, 2017

View of the summit in early-morning sunlight

Closer to the top, the sun is higher now

And boom, here I am on top. This is the view southwest

View southeast at the route I walked up. The sun was still low enough to blot out most of the image

North view of the Sierra Estrella

The ridge as I descend

The secondary ridge that I took from and to my car, which you can see in the distance at the foot of the ridge. The vehicle closer in belongs to some shooters

The peak and most of the ridge I hiked as viewed from my car

View from the north along Hidden Valley Road

This is the highest point in the Ak Chin Indian Rez
