Taliesin Overlook saddle is up ahead. The peak is to the left
At the saddle, looking up at the peak

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...
