“The most important thing in the world is love and family.” – John Wooden
It’s always fun to spend time in the forest with a family, especially with little ones. They get so excited about the flowers and bugs and all the things they can build with rocks and twigs. I long for the sense of wonder and often think about how long it’s been since I was able to embrace the world that way. But, this session turned out to be extra special as it was also a birth announcement! Scroll to the bottom photo to see what they are expecting! Congrats!
About the location, Aspen Corner
The AZ Trail north from Aspen Corner in the San Francisco Peaks offers some of the finest high-country riding in AZ. This easy stretch of trail rolls across high meadows with knock-out views, through towering groves of aspen, and is loomed over by the ever-present hulk of Humphreys Peak. The riding is on 100% smooth singletrack, and although there are some ups-and-downs, it’s never steep. From start to finish, this stretch of the AZ Trail is just incredibly beautiful.
Getting on the AZ Trail from Aspen Corner requires a short jaunt down a steep connector trail (which is more difficult to ride than anything on this stretch of the AZ Trail proper).
