V-Bar-V Heritage Site

Humphreys Peak – 1st Attempt

After I flew into Las Vegas my BFF Jen picked me up from the airport and we drove to Flagstaff, AZ to spend a few days of sightseeing.  On the list of planned activities was hiking Humphreys Peak.  We were up before the sun and headed out to the trailhead which was only about a 15 min drive from Flagstaff.  The sun was just coming up as we started down the trail at 6am – I was seriously wishing I had some gloves as it was a little chilly, but I knew it would warm up as the day went on.
