November 30, 2021

Blackjack Mountain to the right, seen from about three miles away

Blackjack Mountain pokes up behind the foreground hill, evil catclaw to the lower left

About halfway along the ridge

The peak ahead, lovely flowing grass, pinon and juniper, a little cactus

The steep uphill toward the top

Now on the top ridge, the summit is in view

Summit cairn, view east toward Haystack Butte

Southwest view, the Apache Peaks

Northwest, the Sierra Ancha

North view. Not sure what peak that is

Four Peaks way out there. The bigger peak closer in is Jump Benchmark

Dawn view of Haystack Butte and Black Mountain
