Tinajas Altas Peak
November 10, 2018

View of the Tinajas Mountains from the north. I think the left-most of the doiuble-summit may be the highest point

We congregate at the start. Our ascent canyon is in shade, to the right. The summit is the left of the two distant peaks to the right

Now atop a big pour-off, looking out at the Cabeza Prieta Mountains

A view up the canyon. The peaks ahead are not the summit

More canyon. No, that's not the summit up ahead

The ascent canyon makes a left. The summit is just beyond the point at the top of this gully

The summit mass. The highest point is to the left

It gets very steep for the final couple-hundred feet

Summit view, southwest, looking at the border fence. The U.S.A. is to the right, Mexico to the left

Me on top, happy I'm here, but itching to get down

We descended a different canyon, with this fine view of the summit

Continuing our descent

We had to get around this huge dry-fall

My favorite part of the hike: the trek across flat desert back to the cars

One last view of the mountains as we walk out
