Safford Peak & Tumamoc Hill
November 22, 2015

The peak lit by early morning sun

Hiking up toward the peak

Steadily getting higher

Now on the trail below the cliffs

The summit area, as viewed from the saddle directly west

Looking west at Panther Peak and the Silverbell Range

View up at the gully we ascended

Patch of saguaro cactus as we hike out

On the exit, looking back up at the peak

Sign at the start of the hike

The lower complex of buildings

The guys at the summit area

Me, too
