The road up the mountain is twisty, turny, steep and narrow making driving a bit of a challenge, but we finally made it to the summit. There's a nice little park up there and a wonderfully cool stone structure called Dobbins Lookout. Apparently it is a favorite point for taking pictures.

|Looks like I'm standing on top of the world.|

valley was spread out as far as you could see from up there.

At the foot of the mountain there's an old deserted trading post called Scorpion Gulch...a very interesting spot to explore.
|Jenny, Micah and Nate at Scorpion Gulch. Micah was disappointed|
he didn't see any scorpions on his first trip to Arizona
|An ancient cactus towers over the buildings, and the boys.|
|A better view of the trading post and adjacent building.|
|It looks like it might have served as an inn at one time.|
|We watched as a trail ride set out from the neighbouring ranch. I|
heard a mother saying as they set out, "Dianne you have to relax."
I don't blame the poor girl for being a bit tense. Hope they had fun.
