Pontatoc Canyon Catalina Mountains November 19, 2013
Awesome photograph of canyon vegetation and wall
After Tara returned early from work I decided to get a hike in before dark. I drove to the Finger Rock Canyon Trail head (for directions please consult my September 29, 2013, post) and hiked into Pontatoc Canyon. The Pontatoc Canyon trail splits off from the Pontatoc Ridge after 0.8 miles. I managed to hike about 1.5 miles before I turned around as the sun was setting to the west. This canyon is extremely beautiful and I will return in the future. I enjoyed a colorful sunset as I hiked back to the trail head. After the sun set clouds to west turned yellow then orange and finally red. Enjoy my photographs.
Looking west toward the Tucson Mountains late in the day.
