San Luis Mountains Highpoint & Black Mesa
January 27, 2024

The San Luis Mountains come into view, but that's not the summit

Closer view

About halfway up

That's the summit up ahead

Slightly lower now, summit is centered

The summit ahead

Rock, grass, a fence, an antenna

West: the Pozo Verde Mountains (Pozora BM), which I climbed earlier today

Snow-clad Santa Rita Mountains in the distance, Fraguita Peak closer in

View north from where I came, Cerro Colorado in the mid-distance

Pile of rocks on the lower ridge bump summit

View northwest across the Altar Valley: Baboquivari Peak, Kitt Peak, and Coyote Peak


Black Mesa

Black Mesa ain't so black

Typical terrain

Summit there

One set of summit rocks, view west at the San Luis Mountains highpoint, roughly centered

Fraguita Peak from another set of summit rocks. I thought these were higher

Hiking back down to my shiny thing
