I took several small local trips over the month of September. My favorite trip was a day in the Laguna Mountains with the disintegrating Hurricane Kay passing through the area. When I arrived in the mountains I was greeted by one of my favorite conditions: fog. This first shot was taken while the fog was rolling through.
A few moments later there was a downpour and I took shelter in my car. I drove up the road to another location. By then the rain had stopped. I love the spaciousness and interaction between these trees. Each tree has its own character. For this shot it was a tree party!
Later in the day, the low clouds cleared and I set off on a short hike to catch the sunset on Garnet Peak. The hike to peak was very special. The mountains had gotten a lot of rain over the past few days. I was surprised to see the high desert with fresh, vibrant blooms.
On another day, I got up at sunrise to hike a section of Daley Ranch. It was foggy again!
