Middle Camp Mountain
April 3, 2022

Middle Camp Mountain the day before, at sunset

Morning sun brightens the canyon walls

High on the ridge, not the summit yet

Nearing the top but still not quite there

On top of the east summit with the benchmark, looking at the west summit

The east summit as viewed from the west summit, into the morning glare

South view from the top, Sawtooth Mountain across Interstate-10

North view

Hiking back to the east summit, this was really the only place where the cholla were thick

The slope down off the summit ridge. I ascended the drainage barely visible at the right, but I descended into the one at the left

Summit shots of the east and west summits, a miner's shack, the benchmark
