Sunset at the top of Mount Woodsen. It was a shortish 2.2 miles from my car to this peak, but it is also an elevation gain of 1184 feet. It took me a while to get up there. 😉
There are three peaks on the far horizon just to the right of center. The tallest peak, with the little higher peak, in Mount Laguna. The haze in the sky is the remnants of smoke from the recent fires.

The access road serpentines its way up the north side of the mountain. In some places, this place in particular, the road barely makes its way between giant boulders.

Calliope, taking a break in the shade, as we walk the five mile loop of Lake Miramar Reservoir. It was a fairly warm day, and we got our required number of shadow breaks, where we consumed an adequate amount of water.

Calliope loves laying down in water. Here she is getting cooled off. It was 102 degrees F on our little hike today and she just walked in and layed down, "Ploop!" We sat there for a while, and she just listened to nature. … Me too.
