Humphrey's Peak - Arizona State Highpoint

Humphrey's Peak - Arizona State Highpoint

he last few years have been slow climbing big peaks.  For 4 years I averaged 5 Alpine 88 peaks per year, then in 2015 that dropped to 2.  In 2016 I got my first with a guided climb of Mount Baker and thanks to a busy work schedule it looked unlikely a second was in the works.  Then we had a chance to head to Arizona a day early for our Grand Canyon Thanksgiving trip.  I seized it, expecting an easy and fun hike.  But the weather had other ideas.
