Woke up early for sunrise and finally brought my camera along with me to the summit of one of the random desert peaks I've hiked before and I'm happy I did.
Wispy clouds not only provided some great lighting but also kept the morning weather cool and enjoyable.

It was my second time on this nice little rock formation so I explored a bit more and found not only a natural arch but a nearby cave that actually had an opening large enough to crawl through it and get on top of the cave itself.
Needless to say I kind of like this random little mountain that boasts great views, a quiet surrounding desert and a large water tank/pond that sits near it's slopes which all make for quite a nice little place.
