Sawtelle Mountain

Today's destinations were Sawtelle Mountain and Mesa Falls. In the picture below, you can see Sawtelle Mountain in the distance. Notice the little round ball on the top.
Going up Sawtelle takes some time but there plenty of breathtaking views.

The little ball at the top of the mountain is actually an FAA long-range radar station.

The sign says it all...don't go any closer.

Still plenty of snow remains for July.

It was so windy today, we could barely stand here to get our pictures.

It's almost like looking out of a plane. Sawtelle is 9,866 feet high.

Several people rode their bicycles up the mountain, making a great trip down if you make it up in the first place.

It's like being in the clouds. You don't see any trees this high up.
