Views into the land along the Pacific Crest Trail during a late Winter storm at Mount Laguna, California. April 2014.

Where the Pacific Crest Trail east of Sunrise Highway leaves the trees, between Stevenson Peak and Garnet Peak, one gets a good view of the mesa-like landscape of Laguna Mountains. To the west, from where it gently rises, it borders the greens of Cuyamaca Rancho State Park, while to the north, the boundary is a high elevation portion of the otherwise dry and arid Anza Borrego Desert State Park.

In this photo, a late Winter storm moved through in early April, bringing a little bit of snow and rain, and gusty winds that put an icing onto the chaparral bushes and trees.
