Zion NP. Angel's Landing, which seems so mighty and occasionally terrifying (at least for those afraid of heights), peeks up in the middle of the valley, as seen from the rim.
What's better than scrambling up boulders? When a view of Mt. Shasta and a carpet of Northern CA forests awaits.
Glorious! One day, I will climb you.
Gorgeous, and very isolated. Water, food, and appropriate gear are a must. There isn't anyone out here to help you if you run into trouble.
Get up early, go to Sunrise Point. Trust me, it's worth it.
Remember, every step down means another step to climb.
The Hermit Trail is lesser known, emptier, and a little rougher. Doesn't mean that it is any less spectacular!
California poppies in front of downtown San Francisco, as seen from Twin Peaks. Running down the middle is Market Street, which begins its straight path in the Castro and continues all the way down to the Embarcadero and the water. Although it is the state plant of California, it is not illegal to cut poppies - contrary to what we were told as children!
In between skyscrapers
With the Colorado River.
Looking roughly south from Twin Peaks.
