Photo Friday – August 22, 2014

The weekend is almost here, which means it’s time to put away those dress shoes and get those hiking boots ready for some action!

I will say, it’s definitely getting more and more difficult to pick winners for the Photo Friday each week. You’re all doing an awesome job taking trail photos showing off the great hiking here in California and beyond.

Here are this week’s winners:

From our Flickr group, Keri Zehm caught this cool rainbow cloud while hiking Mount San Jacinto. It’s no double rainbow, but it’ll do in a pinch!

Also from San Jacinto, Instagrammer Brenda Lin captured this inspirational shot from the summit, looking down that steep mountainside to the desert below.

From Twitter, Susie Walsh caught my eye with this gorgeous shot of sun shining through a sycamore tree.

And finally, from Flickr, kaew_monopod captured this blazing sunset from Yosemite’s Glacier Point.
