VenturaI took advantage of a minor break in the heat to explore the hills behind Ventura. Here are a few photos from that wandering.
|Looking down on the Ventura Harbor when just starting out.|
|Some recognizable buildings a little west.|
|The trails follow the ridges and pipeline, so lots of views over canyons and to the taller mountains to the north.|
|Looking back across the hills toward the trail I came up along.|
There was a benchmark I wanted to go after, placed at a radio station. I hoped it might be outside the area of the station since it was placed with or after that, but of course it was not. No benchmark for me.
|The neighborhoods on the way inland along the 33.|
|The harbor, one of the high schools, the base, the freeway, it is all out there.|
|Following a guy pushing a stroller up the dirt path.|
|Another look over the hills.|
|A rattlesnake gave me a performance.|
|Sun setting through the clouds from the big V on the hills.|
