We said we would be back and today we did it.It took us 2 hours to reach the top.It was a very tough steep climb but we were rewarded with beautiful views to the west viewing Yuma and beyond,and to the East towards Welton and Casa Grande.

The return trip took us a bit longer because we choose the wrong fork coming down adding about another 1/2 hour.

Tired and sore at this point and can't imagine how we will feel in the morning.We have the muscle ointments ready to go and will soak our legs feet and whatever prior to bed tonight.

It will be an interesting morning around here if we can still walk or stand!!
