I was driving down to Tucson and had a little xtra time, so stopped by for the hike up. What a fun climb.

I finally notice this peak as I was recovering CZ1931, ROTTEN.
What a ROTTEN view!

Yep... no catastrophic events have happened to take the whole peak down... Shambler, 442, and I hiked up to see what we could see and the top is still there! ;)

I have gone to the peak on the third week of February for 11 years. My daughter, born 2/26, and now 16, has had her picture taken with arms raised on the peak every year.

Mountain peak is missing...wait, there it is!

Found it and climbed it also!

The peak is there.

As of Dec 18, the peak is still there

Climbed the peak during the event cache.

Made it to the top with a whole bunch of others.

Hiked to the top with an entire band of Geocachers..

Team Dodge Podge and We C*EM were both very helpful on the climb with my seven year old..

I can confirm the peak is still here.

Team Dodge Podge made it to the summit today. I sure hope that counts as a find! Whew!

Well, I stood on the summit. Does that count?

I hiked to the summit of Picacho Peak on this day. I also hiked to the summit of Picacho Peak on Nov. 11, 1992, March 9, 2002, and March 14, 2004.
