July 2011 - Beating the Heat
They finally reopened the Catalinas to the public after being closed due to high fire danger. Time for a quick trip to 8000 feet!
It got too hot again; time for a trip up into the Catalinas to beat the heat! 106 at the bottom; around 30 degrees cooler at the top.
Trees on Mt. Bigelow.
Mt. Wrightson in the background.
Lance: "why are you stopping again?"
I couldn't get Lance to look in the right direction.
Sunset from the Catalinas.
I caught him looking at the camera!
Good sky colors!
The darker colors from Windy Point, on my drive down from the Catalinas.
You can see Tucson through the trees.
Looking southwest from Mt. Bigelow.
The sun is going to set soon!
