New VTM photo reshoots from Joyce - check it!

Joyce Gross is our most avid VTM photography buffs. Here are two new VTM reshoots for our viewing pleasure. Her original post here, and here are all her new photos on CalPhoto.

She says: This was the first VTM photo site I've found that required a hike to get there. Not only was the photo not taken from a road, but it was not taken from a trail. The hike from my car to the site was a little over a mile, but it felt like more. It was all uphill, and we didn't really know where we were going. The first 2/3 of the hike was along a narrow, rocky road (image below). The last third of the hike involved somewhat random wandering over rocks and around bushes towards a view we hoped to see but weren't sure exactly where it was. My Garmin GPS, and Gaia GPS on my iPad, were my friends on this hike, helping us get to the photo location and, especially, helping us get back. Thanks Joyce!
