This is a continuation of last night's entry. Tonight, my day trip diary covers San Pedro Vista and Aspen Vista. Tomorrow night: Marshall Gulch and Summerhaven.
Narration, MVI_0830: This is San Pedro Vista. Sometimes you can see hawks here, but not today! Oh, well. Down across that valley is the San Manuel smelter. Copper. I suspect that it has to do with people who wanted me to interview for a job. But it was just too far away.

You can see why the hawks like this place.
Narration, MVI_0837: This is Aspen Vista Point. We're getting well up the mountain now, in a different kind a habitat. As you can see from the trees, the fire of a couple years ago did reach this area. I'm going to take you past a couple of signs. If you look way out here, there's a copper smelter. Way out in the distance.

San Manuel smelter: many miles away, many miles below.
Tomorrow: a small waterfall, and Summerhaven returns from the ashes. (This time for sure!)
