Day 5: Aspens & Remembrance

 On this day, we visited Sunset Crater, a dormant volcano, and saw a cinder field with many flowers and views of the aspens on the mountains in the distance. The air was crisp and clean and smelled of evergreens. We drove down a forest road until our sedan was stopped by a washout. Then we went up Humphrey's Peak towards the Snowbowl ski area and hiked some trails around Aspen Corner. The aspens were glorious! It was quite chilly up there, it's around 9,000 feet. That night I took photos of Mitch at two places where he used to play music gigs when he lived in Flagstaff, the Monte Vista hotel lounge and the Weatherford Hotel.
