March 2013 - Picacho Peak
A Tucson ICO (Inner City Outings) trip in conjunction with the International Rescue Coalition.
Hiking Picacho Peak in the spring time means flowers (some years more than others).
Some harrowing ascents and descents on this hike!
Some places are steep enough to warrant guide cables.
Drainage and cacti.
More cable climbing.
The friendly neighborhood iguana. Loren and I though maybe it was a female Sauromalus ater (common chuckwalla): http://www.reptilesofaz.org/Lizards-Subpages/h-s-ater.html
The rest of Picacho, if not the "peak", which we were on.
Group pow-wow at the top.
Arizona desert mountain landscape.
Our fearless leader, Andy.
