Decided to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of my first Humphrey's Summit by coming in from the Inner Basin. Beautiful weather. The AEG is from my Garmin 60CSx and is more than listed for this hike. I'm listing my time, but it is a little longer than normal because 1) Some snow in the trees made route finding a little tenuous, 2) Some snow on the Weatherford switchbacks made for a dicey - but thoroughly enjoyable - traverse 3) High winds on the Ridgeline and at the summit 4) I took lots of photos and 5) my old age caught up with me and I had some inner thigh cramps over the last 4 miles. Lots of folks coming in from the Snow Bowl Trail. Met some women from the Friends hiking group who were training for a Muir Trail trip - 21 days. All of the campgrounds at Lockett Meadow were full. I was going to look for a campsite in the Kaibab but went to Bonito Campground and paid the $18 for running water and toilet. I guess I'm a little more civilized and not as rugged as I was 40 years ago.
