Hitting the Ernie Maxwell Scenic Trail

Looking down in to the valley


Bright blue skies

Twisted and torn up

Lily Peak

Acorn beret

Soaring overhead

Oak leaves starting to change

Blending in nicely


Tiny cluster of red

Sharply defined cloud shadows

Lily Peak again

Stripped bare of bark

Spiraling up

Tiny patch of red


Suicide Rock, heading up Devil's Slide Trail

Up at the saddle

Just past the saddle

Inside the hollow

Rogue fungus

Don't mess with the lookout tower

At Tahquitz Peak

Looking out

Hazy day

Nicely provisioned lookout tower

Reservoirs not completely empty

Lookout's edge

The lookout tower

Prepping for the hike down


Elevation not posted (8,846 feet)

Slowly decaying

Dried ferns

Soup, in a tureen!

Finishing the prep

Bear Cabin

One last patrol of the perimeter
