With a cold front moving through, I wanted to do an early hike north on the PCT in the cool of the morning. I nearly stepped on a lizard who had selected a poor location to become torpid … smack dab in the center of the trail. (After I took this picture, I gently lifted it with a stick and set it in a sunny spot just off the foot path.)
Mt San Jacinto was shrouded with a layer of fast-moving clouds, with just the peak exposed.
Within seconds, the clouds had been blown off, again revealing the massive mountain in its entirety.
