Eastern High Country from Afar

I was out in the Santa Ana Mountains yesterday and snapped this photo of the Eastern High Country of the San Gabriels:


I always like seeing the peaks from afar and seeing if I can identify them.
HeyWhatsThat is an excellent resource for checking if you're right.

Cool.

You must have been in the very northern part of the Santa Anas.

I also try to identify peaks I see on the horizon, then I try to figure out how I would attempt to climb them Smile It can be very distracting while driving.

Doh!  I forgot you have high powered cameras.  I have to stop thinking through my limited phone camera lens.

Funny that you also think about climbing routes of distant objects.  I feel a little less weird now.   Smile

At the very least I'm trying to put the pieces together.  My mental map is my constant double check against nav errors.  Gotta keep the big picture in mind.
