Figueroa Mountain Firewatch II

If you’ve read any of my posts, you know that Figueroa Mountain is one of my favorite spots – especially the firewatch.

I would like to tell you something odd about the top of the mountain. I was painting with a friend. She painted looking at the view you see here. I painted on the other side – a different view.

I was freezing! Luckily, I keep a stash of clothes in my car for plein air painting. Sweaters, scarves, wool hats, etc. I bundled up to paint. I took a break and walked to the other side where my friend was painting. She had on a spaghetti strap tank top and was chasing away all the flies. It was HOT on that side! Freezing on mine, hot on hers. 

Just one more mystery on the mountain.
