To travel east to west in arizona is to move from regions that average ten to twelve inches of rain annually to areas that average two inches—and in some years, none at all. There is a point along Interstate 10, not quite halfway between Phoenix and Blythe, California, which has some of the driest terrain in the state. In summer, low mountain peaks north and south of the highway shimmer jaggedly in waves of heat. Big Horn Peak, in the Big Horn Mountains Wilderness is one such peak. This trail guide covers an area with no maintained trails.
