Hike report for June 6, 2024 - Centella Point:

Six hikers met up this week to go up to the crest.  

The heat is upon us, so that will be the plan for the next month or so.  We enjoyed finding all of the signs that were placed on the previous hike - thanks to all of you that schlepped them up there and installed them!

It was warmer up there than expected, but a cool breeze made for a pleasant hike.  Besides the new signs, the trail was in good shape with no trees down (thanks to the efforts of several groups recently).  Two hikers opted to stop partway out Centella - the rest of us had lunch at the point.  It was a little bit hazy, but always a nice view:


We met up afterwards, and looped around past Bear Wallow spring and Round Park.

We then met a group of hikers from Tucson, who were climbing peaks:  Snowshed, Chiricahua, Fly and finally Riggs peak.  I’m sorry I didn’t get a photo of them (they read our hike report).  It was nice to have met these other hikers!

As always, Elaine looks for wildflowers - Here are a few photos, our beautiful Iris:  Iris misouriiensis, and our lovely high elevation honeysuckle, Lonicera arizonica: 



Next week, we will meet at the Silver Peak trailhead at 8AM Arizona time (9AM New Mexico) to carpool up to Barfoot Park and hike out to Ida Peak.  We will leave a car on the Pinery road to shuttle everyone back to their cars.  Please bring everything you need for a summer hike!
