Ascent Trip Report

I took a nice Springtime vacation to Arizona in April 2008. I met my good friend Dean to hike Browns Peak, Black Mesa, and Navajo Mountain. After Navajo Mountain Dean headed north for home and I headed west. I was kind of headed home also, but I wanted to tag a few more summits before getting there.

Dean had given me Scott’s excellent Trip Report for Mount Perkins and it looked like it wasn’t too far out of my way as I headed home to Oregon. I drove all the way across Arizona and headed north from Kingman towards Las Vegas before car camping for the night near Chloride, Arizona on Hwy 93. I got a good night’s sleep and got up at dawn to drive the final few miles to the turn off on Hwy 93.
