Ascent Trip ReportNice climb around Ski Apache, took about 1:20 to get to the top of Lookout from the trailhead near the parking lot. Beautiful views, gorgeous weather. After I got to the top of Lookout, I headed for Sierra Blanca. After hopping the fence onto the reservation a storm started moving in but I kept going. I scared off a herd of elk. Hawks started hawking. Fog rolled in, then rain. Decided to turn around maybe 400 feet from the top, didn't want to get lost. Then it started hailing, wind started gusting. I was cold and soaked by the time I got down to my truck. I guess she (Sierra Blanca) didn't want to be climbed today.
