I headed for a spot I'd been to only once before, before I had a way to geotag pictures. I was going along the base of Pass Mountain, which means there were a lot of ups and downs. Normally when I'm just wandering around out there, I'll walk along ridges or washes so I don't have to work so hard. I'm a lazy person at heart. This time, though, I wanted to get to a specific area, so I went as straight as possible. I tried to move quickly, stopping only to take pictures, because I got kind of a late start. Up, down, up, down, up, ....
I took pictures mostly in just two directions, because of the angle of the sun and because of the view in those directions. I didn't go quite as far as I wanted to, but it was getting late and would soon be too dark for pictures.
I took a slightly different, parallel route on the way back. It sure made a huge difference in how much up and down there was. It was almost flat compared to the way out there.
The sun was behind mountains for several minutes before I got back to the truck. The low spots in the terrain were filling with cool air. It felt great. By the time I drove out, it was down to 76. It was almost 90 when I got back to town, though. Click below to see all of the pictures.
