Santa Maria Peak (Peak 3513)
February 15, 2020

Santa Maria Peak (Peak 3513) is the bump to the right. In the foreground is Peak 3322. Taken as the sun was rising.

Now on the ridge, Peak 3322 up ahead.

The summit of Peak 3322 is directly ahead, and the main summit is to the right.

The highpoint, and the saddle below.

The last hill to the top.

This is the summit rock.

South view from the top, of the Black Mountains.

Southwest view, Tres Alamos Peak and I think that's Buckhorn way in the back. In the foreground is the Santa Maria River Canyon.

Northwest view, with Grayback Benchmark in the back. I was there last weekend.

Northeast view, the Santa Maria River and ranch, then distant peaks toward Prescott.

View southeast of the summit rock, and distant ranges such as the Weaver Mountains and Date Creeks.

View of the peak as I descend.

Back to my car. The slope in back is what I climbed originally.

View of the peak, with Peak 3322 to the left, taken near the ranch.
