 Humboldt Peak   

8/7/11 (later in the day)
Humboldt Peak
TH Start: 4:55 p.m.
Elevation start: 11,685 ft
Summit: 7:10 p.m.
Back to TH: 8:55 p.m.
Distance: 3.8 miles
Total elevation gain +/-: 4758 ft

I felt good after taking a break in the middle of the afternoon, so I decided to go bag Humboldt...the rest of the guys had no interest in this peak so i went solo. On my way up, right before the upper lake, I found some folks surrounding a man that broke his ankle. He looked in miserable pain. He had 4 good folks working with him, I informed them that Matt was EMS/EMT and that he could probably help with a good bandage/wrap...one of the ladies went down looking for him. I was then back on the trail...I hope that guy is ok and is back at home taking care of that foot.

Fishing was ok...we caught most fish right below the little waterfall beneath lower lake. They were jumping up the waterfall...one of the guys actually caught one with his hands.
