Puffy clouds where out so it seemed like a good opportunity to try out a xmas present of clip on lenses for my phone. Clouds were gone upon arrival. Parked between Kiwanis & Piedres Grande. Also needed to test RS iOS 5.2.0 for a third hike. Did my best to mossy* about to trick iOS into straight lining. No dice for the third time in a row, keeps working. Doubting the little fix until a longer hike with a break but it's 3 for 3.
Mid week and it's warming up so the number of hikers were scarce to light.
Construction at Telegraph is moving along possibly slower that Piestewa. However it was just 4 workers... 3 supervising 1. Heading back up Telegraph my hammy was screaming like a whining turtle. Pain is a frame of mind but a group was progressively gaining. It all worked out, didn't even hear 'em after the brutal flat sidewalk of death.
Impressed with the macro and circ polarizer. The wide angle is weak and I don't get the lure of fish eye. Changing is a hassle but would be easier for superstars with excellent vision and hand skills.
Wildflowers ObservationModerate Holding, except the Brittlebush is dying out for round two. Majority of poppies are on Los Lomitas from Piedras Grandes to Ranger. Nothing new along Kiwanis. Not much along Telegraph.
