Another one that was on our list of summertime summits. Starting at the beautiful Lockett Meadow, walking through the Aspens was a really nice treat in short time. Trail doesn't mess around with elevation obviously, you have to get 4650 AEG finished in just eight miles. Pushing on we reached the service road and took that for a ways until the Inner Basin Trail heads up towards Weatherford. This is where the fun begins! Climbing, and more climbing. Pretty soon after several switchbacks you can see Humphreys peeking out over the horizon. It's still a couple of miles away, and it seems like no matter how much more you hike you don't get any closer! After passing Agassiz we made the descent down to the saddle which was filled with people. Looking up you could see the stream of army ants coming and going from the peak. That last section of Humphreys was really rocky, and a lot of little ankle twisters along the route... Getting up to the top was fairly enjoyable, and I imagine the other 40 people would have agreed. A quick lunch, and back down we went. Probably passed four to five people the entire way down to the service road, then at least 15, with one group sitting on a log awaiting the rescue team. We passed a sheriff's deputy, and I told him where she was waiting. Headed back down the hill without incident, and we were both glad it was over. A great hike, a good workout, and excellent views. I'm glad we got to scratch it off the list :-)
ran into @DixieFlyer on the way up, his group was making their way up to Fremont. nice to meet ya!
