I am heading to the hump that kind of looks like a thumb in the middle of the ridge. It is a long way up!
I am less than a 1/2 mile from Tom's Thumb
Here's a photo where you can ALMOST see the fountain in Fountain Hills (I could see it when I took the photo).
Almost back to the car. It is was a beautiful hike.
P.S. Heather: A guy I talked to on the trail said he thought this trail was as steep or steeper than the Grand Canyon. I can tell you today my legs are agreeing with me.
