This is a trip to summit some prominent peaks in the four-corners area (common border of Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado). Aside from the summits, there should be time for some general sightseeing in what is, in my opinion, one of the most scenic areas of the Colorado Plateau. See photos from an earlier trip to Navajo Mountain here- http://www.meetup.com/LasVegasMountaineersClub/photos/8421902/
The plan is to drive partway out on Friday evening, camping in a primitive area near Sevier, UT, finish the drive to Abajo Peak, and climb it on Saturday. From there, we'll camp Saturday night at Goosenecks State Peak. On Sunday, we'll get a permit to hike in the Navajo Reservation ($5 per person) and summit the only two peaks in northeast Arizona with over 2,000' of prominence, before heading home (Pastora Peak and Roof Butte).
Total Distance: 6 miles round trip on Saturday, 4 miles on Sunday
Total Elevation Gain: 2,000' Saturday, 1,100' Sunday
Altitude: about 8,000 - 11,360'
Terrain Description: Abajo Peak and Roof Butte have roads to the summit, uncertain what we will find on Pastora Peak
Approximate Hiking Time: 6 hours
This trip is exploratory, meaning I haven't hiked these peaks before, so I'm not certain exactly what we'll find. That said, I'm sure we'll find fun!
