Weekend Adventure

We road tripped to Durango last weekend for Steph's 10yr high school reunion. Yes, she is getting old.

We stopped in Flagstaff Friday night to break up the drive a little, took 2 hours off the 7 hour drive. The second part was almost entirely through the Navajo Nation, curvy turns for the Mustang :) but bad road conditions :(

rain! we got excited, don't see it much!

My favorite AZ brewery

4 Corners! Not really that exciting but we figured why not?

I kept taking pictures of the Mustang, Steph wasn't impressed haha

Steph's Dad's hops, he found some wild ones and put up string. They smell and look great! We walked the wedding site again and dropped off supplies with her parents.

Bumblebee fire? This was from Sunday night, about an hour north of Phoenix
Here is a article on the fire, looks we saw it right when it started.

Sorry, no pictures from the reunion, Steph was one of the organizers and I was one of the beer drinkers.

Humphrey's Peak (Flagstaff)

Getting a little behind on blogging!

This is from about a month ago, I hiked the tallest mountain in Arizona with Dan, Humphrey's Peak. ~12,600ft!

It was roughly 5 miles each way, took us about 6 hours total. Adventure as usual, saw a rescue and barely missed a thunderstorm on our way back down. There were a lot of Europeans, most of them come down after visiting the grand canyon.

Weather was perfect, 70's, most of the hike was in the shade too.

taking a break

i missed snow!

coors light at the top

so many bugs.. we didnt stay at the top for very long

very dusty!


the trail head is at the ski resort, this was the rescue helicopter
Great hike, wasn't very steep, just long! They allow camping up to treeline, I want to go back with Steph :)
