Granite Mountain Views

I made the photo of the month for March only two days ago, when I finally hiked Granite Mountain in Anza Borrego Desert State Park. I’ll have a complete blog post with more photos up soon, hopefully. I pretty much know that this is “the winner” for the month – because finally doing that hike meant a lot to me, and it was a great experience.

March was a pretty nice month for photography for me, and I’ve yet to publish quite some blog posts with new images – of chaparral, morning fog on nearby trails, another hike to Cedar Creek Falls, a visit to Daley Ranch… and you’ve already seen the new hummingbird photos, did you? Those actually make up the majority of photos in the “March” folder on my hard drive (unsurprisingly). :-)

The photo below is not actually made from the summit of Granite Mountain, but from one of two “false” summits, behind which the true summits hides from a hiker’s view when approaching from Cool Canyon in Shelter Valley (this one’s only about 300 feet lower than the actual summit though). More to come!
