Conquered Humphreys Peak! — I hiked this trail (this is the second time!), with my husband, in honor (and for the healing) of some of my friends, and for Earth's healing (Among other personal intentions). Every third Saturday of August is the “Climb to Conquer Cancer of Flagstaff”. While I do not do this walk, when I signed for the AZ Six-Pack of Peaks Summer Challenge, my goal was to hike Humphreys on this date (8/17), for healing of all those who need to conquer or have conquered Cancer or any illness. Along the way, I must say, I kind of forgot of my intentions a few times. However, each time I felt giving up…The intentions came back to my heart and I kept moving to the top. This was a challenging hike…Yet very rewarding. It challenges the mind, the spirit, the body…and in so, a person can build courage, resilience, determination. Along the way, you find “togetherness” with those close to you and with the community of hikers.
