My brother Keith was visiting last week and one morning he and I decided to pack my dog Hiker into the car and we headed up to Vasquez Rocks. This is one of Keith's favorite areas to explore and I love photographing the area. We have hiked there so many times that we decided to head off in a direction that we had never taken. We found ourselves on the Pacific Crest Trail.
As we followed the trail, it took us along a ridge in the south eastern part of the park. From this vantage point, we saw beautiful view of the rocks and the surrounding area.
From the ridge, we could also see the trail twist and turn down into the canyon and then start back up over the other side.
The panoramic views were spectacular.
Keith took this shot of me and Hiker with the mail rock in the background.
