Woodson Mtn. Big Loop 8/30/2020
Starting a Big Loop around Lake Poway to Ramona and back over Woodson.
No fishing today.
Since we cannot cross over the dam we have to go under.
Hersch is waiting for us on the other side.
Is that Turkey Vulture waiting for us also?
There is Rob.
So far we are in shade and in fog.
Boulders are starting.
Made it above clouds.
That looks like some water storage.
Birdhouses, but where are the birds?
We donít have any headlights, now what?
Pilgrimage to Potato starts here.
Some obstacles on our way.
Passing some firemen on a way up. They are being paid for this.
On the top.
Vultures are circling above us.
Lunch is in the shade. We are attracting lot of wasps who want their share.
Lunch is over. Nobody swallowed any wasps.
Our group. John and Rob are still on a way up. Where is Hersch we donít know.
That Potato Chip looks really skinny from here.
Here is Hippo Rock.
Mushroom Rock with a helicopter flying by.
Back at the lake.
Beer is in the shade.
John is enjoying his beer, he deserves it! Rob? He may be eaten by vultures by now.
