Aspens - Kachina Peaks Wilderness

Color Landscape Photography

This photo opportunity presented itself while I was hiking in the Kachina Peaks Wilderness area near Flagstaff, Arizona.

The Kachina Wilderness is located withinin the San Francisco Peaks and includes Humphreys Peak, Arizona's highest point at 12,643 feet. A kachina is an ancestral spirit being in western Hopi and Pueblo religious beliefs. The peaks are sacred to several tribes including the Havasupai, Hopi, Navajo, and Zuni.

This photo was taken with a tripod mounted camera and zoom lens at 24mm. Exposure was 1/13 sec. at f/8.0, ISO 100.
