Joe threw out 3 suggestions. He normally ranks them and always seems to have one that he advertises as "You probably won't want to do this one". Quite often I take that as a challenge.

The real colors of the day were on the way up Snowbowl Road. Parking at Aspen Corner and the area around there was packed and rightfully so, the aspens were poppin.

We started with Temps in the 30's at a half filled TH. Humphreys Summit Trail is my least favorite way up. But there are few legal options currently. With it being a Thursday, traffic on the trail was light.

At the saddle, we started up then down Weatherford. My favorite part of the day. Open views with clear skies. The IB trail is rocky, rocky, rocky.

Lunch at the bus stop and we saw our only 2 people in the IB. We had an option to hike further towards Lockett Meadow, but we both decided we'd had enough and would run out of daylight if we ventured further.

So back the way we came. In the Snowbowl meadow, we hit the golden hour almost perfect. There had to be 50+ people hiking or sitting in lawn chairs waiting for the sun to disappear.
