Humphrey's Peak (HP #9)

After climbing the 8 hardest state highpoints in less than a week were excited to get to Arizona for a peak that was "only" 10 miles of hiking and 3,300 feet of climbing.  We started down the trail mid morning on a really nice sunny day.  We made the summit in a little over 3 hours just after noon.  The clouds were beginning to build so we didn't stay on the summit long and ended up getting hailed on for the 2nd day in a row on the descent.  We managed to make the round trip climb in 5:45 even if we were a little wet and pelted with hail.  Off to Texas!
