Ran up Marshall Gulch with Ben  Sucess!

Ran up Marshall Gulch with Ben while testing out my foot that I haven't run on in a couple of months. Ran down Aspen and killed my foot 1/2 mile from the finish unfortunately. Love the drive and the trail.

Biked it  Sucess!

Biked it from the Safeway, which makes ~32mi one-way and ~6600ft gain. Despite some rain and clouds, it was a pretty fun ride.

Lemmon  Sucess!

Started at the ski resort parking lot and hiked the road to the top. The summit area is all fenced in and gated shut. There were a lot of maintenance workers up there when I got to the gate. I asked one of them as they walked by the gate if it was ok if I went on up to the highest point. He didn't seem to give a crap one way or the other, so I opened the gate and continued on to the highpoint. On the way down I went by the Pusch Ridge Wilderness HP, which is located pretty close to the top of the ski lift.

drove mostly all the way  Sucess!

I hiked to the upper gate from the picnic area at the top of the road, along the perimeter fencing to where there is an opening and then tagged the high point.

From Marshall Gulch  Sucess!

Hiked from Marshall Gulch via Marshall and Aspen trail. Nice hike through forest intially. Good escape from the 110F heat in Phoenix.

Summit from Catalina State Park  Sucess!

w/ Ashley. Backpacked from Catalina State Park to Wilderness of Rocks and camped for the night. Hit the summit the next morning before the long, grueling hike out. Weather was nice; in the 70s at the start of the hike, dropping to around freezing up top overnight. In total, 28.0 miles and 8,500 ft accumulated elevation gain.

At least we hiked the last 1000 feet.  Sucess!

Drove up to Summerhaven and hiked a couple miles to the summit. Better than driving the whole way I guess.

scenic drive  Sucess!

Driving through the saguaro forest near the bottom was the highlight. Drove nearly to the top and then bushwhacked a little along the barbed wire fence surrounding the observatories until I found the summit benchmark. Nothing too exciting- but pleasant late October weather

Great time to visit is the fall

We went from sweltering hot at the base to nice fall colours at the summit. Did a portion of Soldier's trail and camped on the mountain

Down a bit and back up  Sucess!

We did a loop, starting at the summit. Went out the Lemmon Rock Trail to the Wilderness of Rock Trail and came back the Mt. Lemmon Trail. Great views and a great hike.

Sutherland Trail  Sucess!

I climbed Mount Lemmon from Catalina State Park via the Sutherland and Mount Lemmon Trails. The trail disappeared in heavy brush and wildfire debris on a rocky ridgeline at about 7400-7600 ft. and I had to follow the route by rock cairns and old flagging tape. I lost the route at one point, but soon regained it on the ridge crest. I rarely hike a new route without a map, but had none this time and really missed it.

Nice Area!  Sucess!

I had been on the Mount Lemmon Highway once before, but only to Rose Canyon Lake. It was nice to go back, after already doing a hike of Wasson Peak and Amole Peak earlier in the morning, and especially considering the *entire* Mount Lemmon Highway was snow-free. You could not hope for much better in regard of conditions, for late January above 8000' elevation. I parked near the ski area, and hiked up the road from there. When I reached the gated observatory, I followed the fenceline to the "HP" location(s).

super cold and windy  Sucess!

Drove up to the ski area and climbed up the road after the sun had already set. Stomped around in the snow for awhile and then headed back. Nice views of Tucson at night from the road.

Nice foray for a day.  Sucess!

Climbed up the Marshall Gulch and Aspen Trails, and ducked inside the fence to tag the true summit. A guy working at the observatory saw me and kindly pointed me to the very highest point. Snow on north-facing slopes above 7,500 feet and 3-4 inches on the very top itself. A good little workout!

snow tubing  Sucess!

OK, we drove up with Barb and Dan, but going snow tubing near the summit was a lot of fun! Spectacular island in the sky escape from the desert below. Views along the highway up were awesome.
