Salt River Overlook; Goldfield Mountains, September 28, 2014 GPS Map

This was an easy approach—no hill to climb, no fence to crawl under. We managed to get there just before sundown. You have to be quick to catch that colorful light. It fades fast this time of year.

:) Thanks to my daughter Clara for going with me.
