Lizard Rock – Sunset and Moonrise, June 2013

1306 Sunset 2 from Lizard Rock

A bit after Goosehead Rock, just across from the Matterhorn, before crossing Willow Canyon and close to the General Hitchcock Highway is Lizard Rock – it is visible from many different locations in the Santa Catalina Mountains, but I rarely hear anyone mention it…

From the parking pullout we take an obvious trail that leads past a campsite and up a sandy/rocky path to a fantastic, but short, rocky ridge to the top. This is a short hike – it is windy at the top – we settle in – alone – to enjoy the views and wait for the cloudy sunset –
