    Route 100 passing through Rochester VT. This beautiful town was badly hit by flooding in August brought on by hurricane Irene.

    A car worth stopping to look at on the mountain:

    Technically, the pic does show a road in Tucson, but that's not really the point of this pic:

    Kitt Peak: my favorite climb in Arizona, and one of my favorites anywhere. Apologies in advance for the crappy photo quality. My phone's camera is a few generations old. I think it's time to upgrade to either a newer phone or a compact camera.

    You can see the road below a bit above the center of the photo. That bit of road is about half way up the climb.

    Nearing the summit. The mountain is home to a lot of telescopes, most of which aren't seen in this pic.

    [​IMG]

    For the entire ride up and down the mountain, we saw 14 cars.

    Obsessed, you really should resize your photos for posting on the forum. 800-1000 pixels in the largest dimension and 72 pixels per inch is about right. Otherwise, nice pics.
