The Arroyo Seco river bike path to Los Angeles from Pasadena.  Quite scenic in some spots, such as this one.  And, as you can see, not too crowded for an ideal city run or bike ride.

  • The view (~4000 ft. up) along the trail yesterday from the tiny pocket of shade we crouched under to take a breather in the low-90s temps on our way up. And up. And up.
  • A fun view of the Palm Springs airport beyond the desert flora roughly 2000 ft. above the city. From yesterday's hike.
  • Desert's first light of day on yesterday's trail (Skyline Tr. from Palm Spgs)
  • one of the pix from yesterday's test of the new polarizing filter for my camera.  The difference was negligible for this image. I need a better test - something with a highly reflective surface.  But it did kill a bit of the glare when shooting tow. sun
  • From today's run on South Ridge Trail, at ~8,100 ft., looking through Window Rock
  • Anybody else see creature heads or just me? one looks like a shark... the bigger one: an ape maybe? This is from today's run on South Ridge Trail, at ~8,000 ft.
  • One of the more challenging mountain scrambles I did on the location scouting trip. The husband character in the movie needs to make his way to the peak of the nearby hill to ascertain the best direction for them to go next.  This hill could work well!
  • Proof that I actually got in some good workouts on that movie location scouting trip earlier this week.  :)  This hillside -- formed from fossilized sand dunes! - could work for a chase scene sequence.
