This photo was taken from the Palm Springs desert floor of San Gorgonio Peak with nice late afternoon light. This rugged mountain peak is at elevation 11,503, the highest in Southern California.

Imagine Bob if we had transporters like they have on Star Trek.You could have a home right on top of that mountain and beam yourself to it anytime that you wanted. Inaccessible property would be worth a fortune.----charliezap

Nice shot of a very familiar mountain for me. I used to live in the San Gorgonio Pass (Cherry Valley) and loved the mountains there. Mt San Jacinto is the other big one just opposite Mt San Gorgonio. Just wish I'd owned a decent camera during those days Have fun in Palm Springs!

It is funny how it is at times CC, usually I am on the wrong side looking directly into the sun, this time it was one of those right time/place instances. thanks for looking and stay dry down there

Wow Bob, great shot! It really looks like a film shot to me. Much deeper colors and contrast than normal for digital. Really looks great!

Paul, I didn't get the correct light for this photo of San Jacinto, but thought you might enjoy a view, windmills included for your viewing pleasure.

Hey Bob, yeah that's a tough shot but thanks for posting it. Interesting view with the windmills in the foreground - my view was usually just passing by on I-10. Those upper ravines on the mountain have snow even in the middle of summer! Enjoy your stay in the desert
