|Autumn Color on La Madre Mountain|
True to form, the Tuesday hikers did themselves proud on La Madre Peak, today. Jerry and Laszlo sent photos and Jerry wrote up the tale.
Thirteen hikers met early for a climb of the highest peak in the Red Rock Conservation Area, La Madre Mountain at 8200 ft. The trailhead for this hike was in the La Madre Mountain Wilderness off of Kyle Canyon Road. To get there we needed high clearance 4WD vehicles. Fortunately, There were four vehicles that fit the bill and we piled in and took off. We turned down Harris Wash Road off of Kyle Canyon Road.
