Mt. Ord

February 20, 2006

We drove up to Mt. Ord, Arizona for a picnic and hike.
It was a nice way to enjoy President's Day.


Mark and Moe at the gate. We hiked 0.7 miles from the gate to the lookout.

A picture of the lookout at the top of the mountain.
My GPS had the elevation as 7,092 feet at the base of the tower.

A picture looking at Four Peaks from the north.


Karry and Moe at the base of the lookout.
There was no ranger to invite us up, so we didn't make the climb.


Moe with a serious look.


This is a nice view looking east from the Mt. Ord road near the top.
This was an easy drive in our Hyundai Santa Fe.


This is a 10 picture panorama covering about 180 degrees.
The directions are from east to south to west.
