1352 Golden Aspen Trail, Kachina Peaks Wilderness, Arizona
Golden Aspen Trail
Kachina Peaks Wilderness, Arizona
Evening light illuminating the forest canopy glows with the yellow hues of autumn leaves. This trail leads to the inner basin of the San Francisco peaks, a lush volcanic caldera surrounded by Arizona’s highest mountains. This is one of my favorite hikes in the Fall, when the tall aspens sway in the wind, sending a golden rain of leaves fluttering softly to the ground.
