Ascent Trip Report

Began hike in the morning from the lower parking area of the snowbowl using the Humphreys Peak Tr. I had to bail on this hike the day before due to storms on the mountain. But today, skies started out cloudy but cleared over the course of the morning. By mid morning skies were mostly clear and I was able to make the summit by around 11:45. I had looked at doing this hike since around 2007. In that time I moved away from Arizona in 2008 and returned again in early 2014. So it was nice to finally get to the top of this peak after so many years of it lingering on my most wanted list.
