Mt. Wrightson, although not very tall compared to Colorado standards, is the tallest peak in the Tucson area at 9453'. Another notable feature about Mt. Wrightson, as compared to a lot of mountains in the area, is that it has an exposed, rocky summit which offers fantastic views. It was an amazing hike; I hope you enjoy the pictures.
5.4 Miles and nearly 4000' feet of elevation gain; who's ready to climb a mountain!

When we started our hike their wasn't a cloud in the sky. By the time we got about 3 miles up the clouds were starting to envelope the ridge. Very Cool!
