Loop of the Super/Baldy Trails  Sucess!

Climbed this twice back in the 90's and this would now be my 3rd summit.

Hit the snowline about a mile from the Baldy saddle- and the final ascent to the summit was quite icy and reasonably dangerous.

Pics and commentary are here.

Mount Wrightson Memorial Day '12  Sucess!

Great day hike with my wife. Via Old Baldy trail.
Plenty of sun and heat, but a nice breeze throughout the day.
Secret to my success... carrying my own shade.
My third trip to the summit. My wife's first trip, unfortunately she had knee pain the whole way down. She is amazing.

A bear and lots of bugs  Sucess!

Climbed in Fall 2008, I believe. Saw a bear on the way, and tons of bugs at the top.

Wrightson Rules!  Sucess!

Great hike! Great trail- amazing trail work! A warm December day and nice climbing conditions. Didn't have our trekking poles but my wife & I had no problems- the switch backing makes this 4,000 + ft vertical rise relatively moderate on both the ascent & descent. In fact, we passed 9 hikers & probably four were in their 70s!

Old Baldy  Sucess!

A fun but very hot group hike. Arrived at the summit only to be chased away by hordes of gnats. Awesome peak.

Old Baldy Trail  Sucess!

I have admired this peak from a distance for years. It was a joy to finally visit this summit. The views are truly jaw dropping. The wind that day was pretty amazing, too, and also the 84 year old fellow summitting the peak with us, hiking like a 30 year old. I LOVE these fit southern AZ retirees!

Via Old Baldy  Sucess!

My first southern AZ hike (on a nice day anyway), and I was quite impressed! It was in the 30s/40s the entire way up, with a few small patches of snow on the ground and ice in the pines. Besides being a bit hazy, summit views were perfect. Felt easier to hike than the 4000' gain would have you believe!

As good as it gets!  Sucess!

A perfect day - 103 in Tucson and about 70 on the top of Wrightson when we summited. Took our time and about 60 pics - 4 hrs up and 2 1/2 hrs down. My all time favorite in south AZ.

Ice  Sucess!

A nice amount of ice made for a small challenge near the peak...Old Baldy.

Old Baldy trail  Sucess!

A spectacular hike. My favorite in Arizona so far. I started early and was in shade all day. Wildflowers and wildlife were abundant, I saw 5 deer on the trail. Round trip, taking my time and lots of pictures, took me 5.5 hours. Great hike!

Long day for Jane  Sucess!

Hiked from Gardner Canyon with my family, the Jones family,
and Edward Earl. Jane was a bit under motivated, but
finally sped up when we spied the top.

I'd been up a couple times before in 1970+-.
Good views from sharp, bald top.

Route Climbed: Old Baldy Trail  Sucess!

Great climb... this was actually my third attempt (first time I had footwear problems, the second time I was sick and just out for the day). A bit hot starting out but it was pleasant at the summit. Annoyingly buggy the whole way up.

Old Baldy and Super Trails  Sucess!

Great day hike and escape from the heat below. Lots of bugs aruond Old Baldy Saddle, but suspect that won't last for too much longer

Outstanding hike  Sucess!

With Bill Bens and Rick Hartman, we went up the old Baldy trail. I really enjoyed this one and it could easily become my favorite in Arizona.

Beautiful Hike  Sucess!

A wonderful place. The north and east side had a lot of snow, and I saw a large line of turkeys about half way up.
