Explore a slice of Southern Arizona with a trip to the centerpiece of the Santa Rita Mountains. Heading down on Friday morning leaves time to set up camp and have a short hike on a TBD trail on Friday afternoon. We will hike the Old Baldy Trail (#372) to the summit on Saturday. The trail ascends through scrub oak, ponderosa pine, and finally yields to the rocky top of Mt. Wrightson, where you will have a commanding 360 degree view of its surrounds, including views all the way into Mexico. Consider bringing a dish to share for dinner Saturday evening and enjoy the campfire camaraderie. Returning Sunday, I'm planning on visiting the Titan Missile Museum, though the Pima Air Museum may call to others. Join us for good times in Arizona's Southland playground.
