360 degrees from the Top of Baja


I don't know if this is going to work, but here's a 360 degree panoramic from the summit of Picacho del Diablo... Far left is looking North. The observatory is at the far right, but indistinguishable at this resolution.

What a view. The only thing better than the pictures would be to see it in person!

Thanks

Larry, I used an older version of some software that came with a canon camera that I used to use. It's called Canon Photo Stitch, version 3.1. I'm sure there is a better/newer version available, but this did an OK job.

That photo (and the south summit) is very deceptive! It's at least a quarter of a mile away, if not more. We thought it would be a simple hop, skip and a jump to get there. HA! Not so! I suppose if we had spent more time, we could have found a route, but we were quite content with the north summit.

Just kidding, Andy. I knew you made the "attempt".

As Nomad "Vince" reported a few weeks ago, back in the '60's he stood on one of the summits and Bud Bernhard "ran" over to the other with a surveyers level and shot a line back to Vince trying to figure out which one is the highest--------I believe the results were "inconclusive", which in my mind means they are approximately the same elevation.

But then we all thought that "Bud" walked on water, and he probably just "willed" himself onto the south summit. :lol:

None of this banter takes away from your incredible achievement, believe me. :yes:
