The weather is great this time of year to find solitude in the hills while watching trains.

Great perspectives!

I love seeing the flow of dry washes from above--note where the vegetation is thickest, and you'll find water!

Great looking Shots!

How much time in hiking, to get these great shots?

Good area where you are standing for rattlesnakes

Not much hiking involved. There are lots of little hills you can drive the forest services to the base of them then hike up. I hiked the largest peak and it took about a hour to get to the top as you have to make your own trails. I know they are out there but so far have not ran into a snake yet.
