Last week, we had a great hike into the Grand Canyon and this week, we grabbed an almost rain-free Monsoon day and headed up Humphrey’s Peak, the highest point in Arizona at 12,633 feet.
We started the hike from the parking area at Snowbowl ~ 8.30 am and got back down to the car, after lunch on the summit, ~ 3.30pm. A few thunder clouds came in but, we didn’t get any rain and the views were great.
The hike itself is pretty steep…the route is ~ 10 miles round trip, with over 6,000 ft in elevation gain & loss, so it requires 6 – 8 hrs. if you don’t want to be rushing.
