Climbing 32 Switchbacks
We knicknamed this tretch of trail 32 Switchbacks the first time we climbed through it about 30 years ago for obvious reasons. Frank didn't trust his memory, so he was surprised when he counted to 32 as he got to Baldy Saddle at the top of 32 Switchbacks. It never seems fun at the bottom of 32 Switchbacks as the first few are long. You get to 3 and it seems like its taken forever. But they get shorter near the top and it's always nice when the count gets to 30. This image was taken with my 10mm fisheye with an exposure of 1/50 seconds at f/11, ISO 100.
