Butcher Jones Peak
October 8, 2018

View of the beach at Butcher Jones Rec Area, with Peregrine Point to the right

The mountain comes into view a couple miles into the hike

The rock outcrop on top the peak

Approaching the top from the east

Almost to the base of the rock

On top! View east toward Four Peaks and the clouds

Looking west at Stewart Mountain, Stewart Dam and the main bulk of Saguaro Lake

The bend in the river. I was part of a technical rescue back about 2001 on the cliffs slightly to the right of the small cove

Descending the peak now, bypassing a large rock stick-out

The peak with clouds, blue skies and bright sun
