there was something else farther off in the distance with snow on it that we couldn't figure out what it was. i was guessing humphreys over in az, but i just looked at the map and i think that's way too far.
Yeah, wouldn't be Humphreys, way too far away. Was it in the direction of Humphreys from Baldy though (roughly ENE-ish)? Maybe could have been those mountains above Kingman, AZ (blanking on the name...Huavasupai or something like that?)
yeah, when looking at charleston peak from baldy, this other peak would've been south and further away.

Use the original above to see Hillers. You can't actually see it in the image below.
BTW, I noticed someone way back in the thread saying Phoenix, AZ to Humphrey is 250 miles. It is not, it is maybe 135 miles from The Peaks to Sky Harbor airport.

Hey Day Hiker
Driving in this morning, I saw even further to the north than this shot. I was a bit further west, and maybe a little higher in elevation by about 20 or 30 feet, and was able to see a large snow covered peak on the edge of my line of sight. Any idea what it was? It was north of Hengst and Florence, and kind of rounded, but completely covered in snow, so it had to be higher levation. Incredibly clear today with the winds from this storm approaching
