Mt Humphreys Plane Wreck

Post by Sredfield » Aug 01 2003 10:58 am

I'm considering (not firmed up yet, just a thought) another attempt at locating that plane wreckage on Humphrey this Sunday, 8/3. Anyone else interested? I can take 2 or 3 in my car.

I'm interested. I'm heading out on a hike today. I'll check back this evening. I live near Greenfield and Warner but can meet wherever it's convenient for you. I can drive also if need be.

Glad to see that you made it this time.
This is a hike that I have concidered adding to haz for a long time and at the same time thot that I should not since there is uncertanty that any party going up will find it. I am glad I added it since it sparked interest in a few people. Since it's been a few years that I had done it I knew that some of the details might be off a little, like how many switchbacks to go up. Good to see that my instructions are good enouph that people have been able to find it.
Mountains are there to be hiked!

Good adventure with good company. I was surprised it only took 1 1/2 hours from the TH to find it. I found more info about the wreck from aircraftarchaeology.com and posted it as a trip note on Steven's summary. It's brief but worth reading and sheads a lot of light on what happened.

In response to Steven's reply:

Do you know the GPS coordinates for the crash site?
I am thinking about going up there and the peak this summer?
Thanks
Gary
