After heading up the old dirt road scar, the trail starts and heads up between these two giants. Unfortunately, one is already dead.
Not too far up (it is quite steep) the view is already spectacular.
Don't know the cause of all this damage, but it shows how tenacious these cacti are.
Side-blotched lizard scampered across and stood still long enough for me to get this quick shot.
The view from the top is very nice. I can see my house from here. Or I could see it if it weren't for the dust in the air. I would guess our house is just right of center - maybe just left of Camelback.
Another great view. The Superstitions are lit up by the setting sun.
Dust in the air does make for some better sunsset shots.
