Viper, where did you take that excellent shot from?

Al

P.S. someone will probably ask when?

You up on Vernon Bailey there, Viper? The angle into Laguna Meadow looks too far to the west for Casa Grande.

Great shot.

My guess is this was taken from Crown Mountain?

Then again, what do I know??

Did you walk up to the edge (upper left of the original photo) and see the Basin? Bet that's a cool view too!
