After spending a few months in the Quartzsite and Ehrenberg, Arizona area, I was beginning to tire of the same views. I needed to meet a friend in Phoenix, and found Saddle Mountain BLM Area just west of Phoenix. The area appears to be increasing in popularity based on online reviews that I read, but still proved to be a wonderfully scenic spot to camp for a week.

I also spent one day hiking around Saddle Mountain. The hike included a few falls on loose volcanic scree, unfortunately, but was worthwhile nonetheless.

These two videos cover my time at Saddle Mountain and the hike.
