I decided to drive over a ridge or two and take a walk along a trail (more a deer path than anything else) that I discovered a couple years ago. And, surprise, surprise - I took a couple pics along the way.
I got almost to where I remembered the trail crossed the road, and was shocked to see new construction of a gated community, perched on top of the mountain, a good 45 minutes from any town. Another view about to be ruined. Sigh.
The trail was still there, and I had a good walk.
