I was wanting to do a higher elevation hike, so I decided to make my first ascent of the year of Humphreys.

I went up and back down on the Humphreys Summit Trail.

There were only 3 cars at the parking lot when I started, so there weren't many people on the trail early in the morning.

I brought my microspikes with me, but there was next to no snow on the trail so I did not need to use them.

It was a nice day, but it was a bit windy past Agassiz Saddle.

On the way back, I decided to stop and hike up to the lookout atop Hutch Mountain. I didn't want to do much of a hike, so I drove up to the locked gate not far below the tower and hiked up from there. I figure that I'll come back and hike some more in this area. In particular, I'd like to bag Mahan Mountain, which at one time had a fire tower on it until it was replaced by the Hutch Mountain Tower.

Distance and elevation gain for the 2 peaks is below:
Humphreys: 10.7 miles with 3,340 feet of elevation gain
Hutch: 0.5 miles with 108 feet of elevation gain

Stats above are the sum of these two.
