Midweek Reminders to Self of Recent Adventures

Bip puts eyes on the goal

Usually means you are at the top, or at least, pretty darn high

And there's a fence. And antennas. Excessive explanation.

That's Humphreys Peak in the distance in the background, high point in Arizona, 12,637 feet. Interesting hike up there. I feel like I should post a picture, even though it's been a few years since the last time I was up there.

From a hike up Humphreys Peak a few years ago. Ran into some weather up there. Took excellent rain gear, though, so no problemo.
Wednesday reminders. I need some. Wait, what day is it? Get up. Go ride.


  1. I remember camping in Doyle Saddle (the saddle between Agassiz Peak and Doyle Peak) during a thunderstorm.

    The lightning hitting that mountain causes it to rumble ... almost ringing ... like a giant gong.

  2. That's a great view.

    You've got to be real careful riding over those cattle guards. Sometimes it's best just to walk em.

  3. BlueCat I learned up there that lightning freezing rain and hail can come up suddenly and make your hike colder, wetter and more dramatic.

    Rat Trap Press, agreed. I went over them different ways on these rides, including walking. This style of guard in the photo had wide openings that made walking harder than it looks. In the end I preferred to ride straight across at a medium speed. I think you could walk on that board on the side, though.
