I'm old. Highpoint #6  Sucess!

About 2 miles before the summit, my body hit a wall and did not want to go any further. I slowly dragged myself to the summit, but it physically about killed me, or so it felt. Beautiful on top.

Mt. Humphries Summit  Sucess!

This summit was an alternative to rim to rim to rim at the Grand Canyon as the park was closed.

A Summit of Doko'o'osliid (Navajo)/Aaloosaktukwi (Hopi)  Sucess!

Started at 5:00 am and quickly found ourselves in the clouds. Luckily, the clouds abated once we reached the ridgeline. This trail is very gradual, but feels very long. The summit views were awesome as clouds were below us to the west and fairly clear views to the north and east. Back to the TH before 11:00 am. State high point #9.

HP#23  Sucess!

Clouds billowing up from the east blocked the view to the north and east. Hiked up from the Snowbowl parking lot. Wanted to do the loop by returning via Weatherford and Kachina, but my feet weren't having any of it. Blisters on all toes and my heel; time for new boots!

From the west, way west.  Sucess!

Added almost 4 miles since the Snowbowl road was closed. Blue skies but no shortage of wind. Had to crouch or hide behind big rocks from the saddle to the summit. You can see the Grand Canyon from the top, but I dropped down as soon as I could. Fair bit of snow, fresh bear tracks and no others.

Humphreys Inner Baisin  Sucess!

Fair amount of snow still in the basin made going a bit slow and tedious at times. Fairly mild hike otherwise.

Perfect weather  Sucess!

Absolutely perfect weather for this hike. Some fall colors would've really put it over the top. Started out at 8:15a, passed only 8 people on the way to the top. Car to car in 4.5 hours. No snow or ice or mud at all.

Had better luck on Friday the 13th  Sucess!

After 2 previous fails (visits in late Oct 1 year.. then early Oct another) - came out from NJ this 3rd time and had perfect weather / conditions for summit!

Blue Skies and only a little windy (more so on the ridge / final approach than at the summit?!)

Night Summit  Sucess!

Left the parking lot at 6:24 pm. Summitted at 9:30 under one of the darkest skies I have seen. The stars and milky way were all in their glory. Trail was a little hard to follow after the first false summit. However, it was very east to spot on the way down. A lot of rocks, so it was hard to make much time, but all in all a nice hike and another state high point.

Highpoint # 18  Sucess!

Toughest/highest elevation highpoint I've done so far. It is time to start eating less junk food, drinking less adult beverages, and exercising more if I want to summit all 50.

Fathers day weekend hike  Sucess!

Great day for a hike with my son - weather was in 60's, clear, sunny day. Met with snow on the trail in the mid section - used microspikes. Snow was melting during the day causing slushy, mushy snow. Upper mile was clear of snow - loose rock. Trail is well marked. up near the top there are tall poles to look for. Great views on top and a bit windy.

AZ Snowbowl   Sucess!

I carried my 15 year old dog the whole way and she made a ton of people smile!

A Gorgeous Day

After going to the north rim, I kept seeing this peak off in the distance and thought I’d knock it off on the way back home. The weather was perfect, although the trail had plenty of ice. Some of the others on the route had micro-spikes, so I’d advise you to bring them. I took a couple of spills without them. The peak reminded me of the southern cascades and it was great to come out of the forest right as the sun was setting. A great job way to get back into the mountains after a long hiatus.
