Black Mountain Vista

We opened up the Black Mountain Lookout Tower two weeks ago, but today was my first full shift, and a solo one at that. I had brought up some homework to work on, but couldn't really concentrate on anything. This place is my stress valve. I took a bunch of photos of the tower to document some maintenance issues, but I also stitched together this panorama from the catwalk. It doesn't quite capture the full circle (the southern view was way overexposed). Make sure you click on it and scroll right and left to see the whole thing. That is San Gorgonio in the center and San Jacinto on the right.
