A Perfectly Brutal Birthday

September 14th was my 31st birthday, and Chippers 8th birthday.  What better way to celebrate than hiking to the highest peak in Arizona.  This has been on my bucket list, for Chipper, for years – but the weather has never been on our side.  This year – the stars aligned, and we tackled this peak with a few of our favorite humans and dogs.  Click on the link below to check out a video recap of our adventurous struggle!

Humphreys Peak

Humphreys Peak is 12,633ft .

The trail is just under 10 miles, with 2,500 ft in elevation gain.

Take tons of water, food, electrolytes and a good attitude!
