A ramble with a camera, telephoto lens, tripod and remote shutter. Initial aim was to get up on a hill and shoot down on The Tree of Life, that stone and landscape art at the NE corner of the park. Yeah, that place where no one intentionally goes. Here in the cultural dregs of the desert, great art like this meets a blank stare, a stare somewhat like mine. Stood with my gear atop a nearby hillock for about 45 minutes and only a kid on a mountain bike passed, he on a whiz downslope, busting a pimple no doubt to reach the Tree of Life. Alas, the telephoto covered too small of an area, and I decided to shoot other stuff from there and two other locations.

I was last here two years ago, so the newly completed 5k fitness trail caught me by surprise. Elevated, nicely surfaced. Was in use too. Beautiful day, park not too busy although the parking lot was full when I arrived. To where do these people vanish once I'm on the trail? Not complaining, however.
