Under five minutes into the hike Dave spotted the elusive Button Nose Chipmunk. Upon further investigation the identification book he brought was for rain forests in Africa. While unlikely a match it was an exciting moment.

This is my favorite summer hike for Flagstaff. We lucked out with very nice weather the entire hike. No cold rain, no high winds and enough breeze to keep the bug swarms on top in control. No changes in the trails since last year. The drive to the trailhead is pretty car friendly. Just washboard heading up for awhile. It seemed we crossed paths with more hikers doing Humphreys via Inner Basin than in any previous year. A good variety of ages and personalities too.

Our pace above the treeline was a break-a-thon. We hopscotched with a few others. The saddle wasn't packed. Lots of hikers all the way to the summit. Amazingly still snow down in the cirque that will easily last into August.

Carried 4 quarts, consumed 2.5
