Contact Les in advance to arrange car-pooling arrangements.

Meet 7:00 A.M. Park N Ride on Bell Rd. just West of I-17.  John will meet hikers here.

We will ascend the Humphries Summit trail from the Arizona Snow Bowl (9400') and take a break at Agassiz Saddle (11,800') with spectacular views. This will be our turn around point. Those that wish to continue on to Humphries summit (12,633') can do so.

Please bring 3 liters of fluid, wind-breaker and warm clothing. No dogs please.  This is a classic high altitude outing and we, hopefully, will not encounter rain in June but one can never be sure...
