East Pocket Knob
September 8, 2018

Partway up the steep slope, looking south at Wilson Mountain

Looking up, the trail will eventually reach the dark-colored knob up above

Rocky dikes along the route

Suddenly, the lookout tower

View of the lookout from a little bit to the west

West view of the smoke from the Platypus Fire

Humphreys Peak

Smokier view as I descend into Oak Creek Canyon

The long uphill slope

Montage of signs. I could not locate the actual benchmark

Montage of where I crossed Oak Creek, plus another image of the slope
