I love exploring Alum Rock Park. I make it out there about once a month and I always come back feeling refreshed and inspired. This was the first time I had been on the S. Ridge Trail and I took so many photos that I only made it about halfway up. I look forward to carving out more time to return and photograph the same trail in a different season... hopefully right after the rain so it cleans up that layer of smog over the valley. :( boo.
