… so this is what it looks like to be running the ridgelines at the San Francisco Peaks. Humphreys peak is way behind me the peak on the far right is Agassiz and it is the peak you see when you are coming up I-17 from the south; it is only a few hundred feet lower than Humphreys and thus because of the angle from below, it blocks Humphreys from view. The top of Snow Bowl is on the far right side, below Agassiz. The peak towards the left and behind the ridgeline I was running is Fremont Peak. Altitude at the time I took this shot was 12,370’ which is about the same as Agassiz and 267’ feet lower than Humphreys.
Anyhow. As usual, it was a blast flying the peaks … tomorrow morning we’re heading down to Lake Pleasant and spend the day on the water looking for waterfowl. Should be a good day and hoping for some good shots. Into the weekend for me … have a beautiful day, keep smiling, keep breathing.
Back Monday morning
Sleep sweetly now that the gates of the crimson night are closed,
and leave tomorrow’s struggle for tomorrow;
The earth is peaceful, only the stars and still moon are abroad, and they wage no war.
— Max Ehrmann
