Had another perfect day on a season's end visit to one of my Graham favorites. Got to see golden aspen leaves by the million (which carpeted the ground instead of the trees). Did some trail clean up along the way. I arrived at the new viewpoint about half an hour before sunset, and was again blown away by the views. The sun was shining, but the wind was bitterly cold at 10,000 feet. The sunset turned the forest a golden color on the way back, and I arrived at the trailhead at dusk. With the Pinalenos entirely to myself, I broke out the big camera on the way home, and took some star shots at Hospital Flat. Only saw 1 skunk on the drive down.
