First we met up with some friends:
We drove for a bit and gradually the terrain gave way from rocky outcroppings dotted with saguaros to scrubby bushes and manzanita trees. Eventually, we ran into pine trees.
Near the top of the mountain we parked.
And it started raining. I was freezing!
And then it was time to go back down the mountain. Eeeck!
