dark o' clock AM, the Cactus to Clouds trail on san Jacinto
Palm Springs sleeps while we sweat it out on the first few miles of the Cactus to clouds trail
I saw that I blocked matt but didnt care enough to redo it. psychological low point of the weekend, hot, sleep deprived and kind of feeling sick
john muir's favorite sunrise (from san J) blocked by some clouds
cactus and clouds
those clouds saved our hides from mr. july sun
7000' on Cactus to Clouds hike
clouds still worked for us, on and off, until well after 8am!
don't worry I put a shirt on by the time we got to tramway
10k' on san J. I have 1000 versions of this shot over the years. I should make a montage.

I like the clouds so I posed for lots of pics here
