This was a long, mellow way to get to know the sunshine again after a long wet winter. I could have stayed up there for days. There is a GREAT loop waiting to be done here from Emigrant cmpgrnd, follow the ridge to the top then take the N.E.? ridge down to Mosaic canyon.
Penelope May and I were at Stove Pipe Wells attending a concert by Barnaby Finch and Friends (an Idyllwild group) so decided to hike up Tucki Mountain. Took our RAV4 9 miles on Tucki Mine Road up to the top over Martin's Crossing and had a pleasant hike rest of the way. 7.5 miles, 2,000' gain. 2 hrs 30 min. 2 hrs down. Wonderful views.
