On Tuesday 26 April 2005, I took another road trip to Mt. Wilson. The visibility was a much better towards the North and North-East allowing one to see Mt. Baldy (San Antonio), Mt. Pacifico, Mt. Waterman, Mt. Baden-Powell and Santiago Peak towards the South-East. Clouds, marine layer and smog prevented more-distant mountains (San Gorgonio, San Jacinto, Palomar) -- as well as Los Angeles cityscapes -- from being seen.

(above) 2005-04-26: 5700-ft. Facing North-East at Echo Rock near summit of Mt. Wilson. Mount Baldy is in the center.
The Mt. Wilson telescopes are behind the camera. There is some haze (fog or smog) which curtails visibility somewhat.
This is a 55 mm image.
* Note: There are some reports that suggest black
clothing may in fact be better than white for protecting skin tissue against UV.
All images taken with Canon Digital Rebel 300 EOS camera. Focus: manual. All other parameters: manual. Tripod was used.
