Humphreys Peak in November

My Brazilian buddy, Mateus, doesn't have a car and has always wanted to hike up Humphrey's Peak so I took him.  Dani happened to be driving through Flagstaff too, so the three us went for it on Friday.  Luckily for us, it was a beautiful and mild November day.  We followed the Humphrey's Peak trail from the Snowbowl parking lot to the top but on the way down we took a short-cut and hiked down the partially snow-covered ski runs of the Snowbowl Ski Resort.  The hike down took an hour less than it would have on the meandering trail through the woods.
