Stopped by snow a couple weeks ago I had to come back. This is still hands down in my top five, the surrounding colors are simply amazing.

Started out at 6:40am. 50 degrees was a heck of a lot more welcome than the 38 degrees a couple weeks ago! It appears the snow has melted about 2 feet in 2 weeks which was just enough to get through in places. This time I came prepared with the ultimate snow gear... sandals :) Don't knock it 'till you've tried it!

The trail was mine until I reached the summit trail. First I met Denny and Bob, Wally on the immediate return, followed by Stefen, Jim and Bud. Coming back onto the Weatherford I passed two groups and that was it in the upper reaches.

The upper Weatherford might be my favorite stretch of trail in Arizona. You have the Painted Desert to the east. It was so pink it was bouncing off the clouds making them pink. The side views of Humphrey's is just stunning with it's charcoal black mass and hints of teal. Now lets talk about the pines! They're everything you want them to be, picturesque, soft and in perfect quantities. I love it all!

This hike kicked my butt again. I swear I was towing a boat the last two miles...
