Heading toward the base of the climb.
My Pops is training for St. George IM. I convinced him to climb with me today - two weeks in a row for him. The fact that I can drag my Dad up Palomar with me on any given day makes me happy.
One of the things I love about the climb is how much the scenery & weather changes over the course of 5,000 ft. elevation gain.
Looking down on the valley.
Headed into the fog-cloud.
Several years ago the mountain burned. Some dead trees remain and provide a stark contrast through the fog.
