Last week, we hiked to the highest point in Arizona, Mount Humphreys.
This week, we enjoyed a quick 2 day/1 night trip and hiked ~19 miles on the Cabin Loop Trail, using the Fred Haught Trail, the Houston Brothers Trail & the General Crook Rim Trail (not the complete loop).
Lovely weather (daytime 70’s, nighttime 40’s for this mid-September hike, with no rain) and lovely woods and rim scenery and nice wildlife spotting – saw elk, deer, turkeys, horny toads, a frog and a couple of javelinas.
We started the hike by parking at General Springs Cabin on FR300

Quite a bit of water to be found in the first few miles on the Fred Haught Trail

Lunch on the go…our stove is the MSR PocketRocket Stove & our pots are DZO Stainless Cups
First time we’ve ever seen a No E-Bike sign anywhere!
Another water source on the Fred Haught Trail…bring a filter of course
Elevation is over 7,000 ft., so lots of lovely pine filled woods and some nice flowers still in bloom

Sandra & Jeff chatting by the evening fire. After hiking almost 500 miles on the Colorado Trail this Summer – complete fire ban the entire time – it was nice to have a campfire again
DZO Stainless Cups heating for tea
Plenty of nice dry wood to get a great fire going…we appreciated this when the temperature dropped after sunset
We sat around the fire for a couple of hours, before Jeff headed off to his hammock and we retired to our tent (The Two from Gossamer Gear)
