viewing the marine layer from above


at inspiration point you can get an incredible view of the san gabriel valley, but on the day we hiked up there we could only see a big pillow of cloud cover.

more skywatch friday photos can be found here.

Wow...It doesn't even look like you're above San Gabriel Valley. It's beautiful, the last time I went hiking all I got was a view of smog =/

It's sort of eerie. Almost as though the San Gabriel Valley has been swallowed up and you are standing at the edge of the world.

Glad you like it Regina.

Smog is always part of the equation in LA County I guess, eh Laughing Boy? Sad but true.

Antjas, it certainly was surreal to be up there above the clouds!

Eric, thanks for visiting all the way from the Netherlands!

Love that marine air - keeps things cool when you can get it, eh? Ours came back to Seattle last night after too long away. Happy SWF!

Lily, it was very surreal to be sure.

Petrea, thanks for the comment as usual!

Island, thanks for stopping by!

Karen, I'm learning how much of a blessing the cool air can be.
