The Superstition Mountains in the distance.
Zoomed in on the Superstitions.
That level spot in the center of the photo is my destination.
The trail crosses a wash.  Here it descends.
Then you go "upstream" a few feet.  You can see lots of footprints in the sand.
Then the trail goes up the other side of the wash.
A trail goes all they way around Pass Mountain.  The park service says it is 9 miles long.  It felt more like 11.5 the time I hiked it.
The trail is easy to follow.
The view of the Superstitions is better from up here.
I have reached my destination before sunset.
Looking towards the valley.
Santan Mountains on the horizon.

Getting close to sunset.
My truck is parked down there.
That's part of Pass Mountain back there.
Shadows lengthen.
Light fades.
Picketpost Mountain is in the center on the horizon.
Sunset.  The brown cloud (pollution) really stands out now.
Brown cloud.
A saguaro cactus and the moon.
Ocotillo and brown cloud silhouetted against the twilight.
Getting too dark for pictures.
Sunset at end of Meridian road

It was such a pretty day today, I had to get out in the desert after work. I couldn't go far, since sunset was close. I went to a small hill at the end of Meridian road to watch the sunset.
