Photo-finish Friday: Where the pavement ends
Snapped this a couple days ago when the storm clouds were building over the hills. The spot where I'm standing is a one-minute walk from my front door, and I'm standing in my socks, so you know I wasn't planning to be away from the air conditioning long. The street goes straight to the edge of the desert and then stops. A sandy track continues but is only good for dirt bikes and people on foot.
The hills are a maze of trails, and you can wander around and climb all you like, though taking water along is a must. If you're up before sunrise, you can beat the worst of the heat these days, but prepare to feel pretty warm anyway.
Photo-finish Friday is the bright idea of Leah Utas over at The Goat's Lunch Pail.
