West Cedar Mountain
March 14, 2014

West Cedar Mountain getting some early morning light

My trusty steed

The road I hiked up on

Now on the ridge, the peak is the bump in the distance to the right

The summit, with East Cedar Mountain in the background. The clouds were heavy here, and everything was in a deep shade

Looking south at the summit, with Stick Scott marking the top

South view of the ridges I came up

West view, with the New River Mountains and the Bradshaws farther back

Summit as I descend

Now back to that flat area and back to the road

Some virga falls in the distance as I drive out

View of the summit from Lockwood Mesa, about 5 miles north

View from near Blackjack Point, about 7 miles away

Panorama looking south. The clouds were thick toward the east, clear south and west

Panorama of the ridge and the summit to the right
