Today was chilly but sunny. I was out doing cases, and got to drive some roads I'd never seen before. You know that always makes me happy! Sometimes views have less to do with elevation than with openings between trees. That said, this is only a couple of miles from the Lake County high point. I'll have to try to get there one of these days! (I don't think there are roads- that will be an adventure, but it's in a state forest, so totally legal to go there.)
Anyway, There I was going north on Hawkins Road and at the top of a small hill I had a glimpse of a view to the NE. I backed up and stopped. Here's that vista.
I'm including two shots in each direction. That's a lot of pictures, but it's amazing what a difference there is in a slightly different angle, or by using the telephoto.
That was what grabbed my attention. Then I turned around and looked back south, the way I came.
That one showed a lot of orange, but when I shifted and pulled it in a little the picture is very blue!
Then I had to check out the view to the west. This was a more narrow opening to see the far hills.
This is more directly west, and less of a long view, but I like it better.
And north? No long view at all. But... it was great!
This is one of those rare instances when you can actually get a sense of elevation in a picture of a road or trail.
Found a couple other nice things, too. Stay tuned. But this was really super!
