Romero Pass, Romero Canyon Trail – 2014/4/5

1404 Arriving at Romero Pass

Arriving at Romero Pass took about 2 hours and 40 minutes of hard effort on the Romero Canyon Trail – it only took another 3 or 4 minutes for my friend Richard to appear on the West Fork trail. This was our meeting spot for today – he started at Molino Basin and was about 13 miles into an east/west crossing of the Santa Catalina Mountains.

The pass was too windy/chilly to be a nice spot for a break – so after refilling bottles we headed down – eventually taking a break along the canyon – green plants and flowing water!

Alison was also hiking up from Catalina State Park – her small blue figure was hard to spot against the huge walls of the canyon!

Down, down, down the canyon – beautiful sections of canyon abound above Romero Pools –

we had all seen other people during the day but until Romero Pools we didn’t see anyone on the descent, after Romero Pools there were quite a few groups headed down – a lovely day to enjoy the trail!
