Day 11, Part I

I ran into Dolly, a former colleague of mine from Grand Canyon, at Jacob Lake this morning after a rather indulgent meal (I admit, I had the ice cream cookie sundae after breakfast. One thing about thruhiking, I know I’ll burn it off in short order.). After a discussion with another couple about my trek over breakfast, Dolly lightens my load for a bit and shortly I’m heading south again.

The aspens take center stage today; a glorious display of color across the Kaibab. I’ll let their beauty speak for itself in this part.

Peaking aspens surround a loner that is a microcosm of the changing seasons itself – peak near the top transitioning to green below
Love trees that appear to be in transition themselves along with the season. This one, with its flaming tip down to green base, illustrates that change well.
