|Whiting Woods Trail 2014 Katherine Kean|
graphite 10 x 8 inches
This view from the trail at Whiting Woods looks north. If you stand at the edge you can make out the very vertical streets that run from the Crescenta Valley all the way up to the edge of the Angeles Forest; Dunsmore, Pennsylvania, Ramsdell, New York. If you look directly down you see Dunsmore Park - seeming to look a lot closer than the climb up makes a person feel. Like so many of the trails in these parts the way up is steep.
My favorite time to go is late - as the sun is falling and the day is cooling off. It's wonderful to watch the lights come on bit by bit in the neighborhoods below.
