Taliesin Overlook
March 8, 2017

The peak as seen from the Lost Dog trail

Taliesin Overlook saddle is up ahead. The peak is to the left

At the saddle, looking up at the peak

About halfway up. I aimed for that saguaro up on the ridge

I rousted a mule deer

The top, with two stone benches

View of the McDowell range from the summit

Looking west from the summit

The overlook saddle down below

This is Taliesin West. It's easy to overlook...

Walking out this fine sunny and warm March day. The peak in back is Verde Benchmark
