Over at The Daily Timewaster, C.W. often posts scenic pics like this in his “Open Road” series (click to embiggen):
See, others are going to go into raptures over Nature’s Incredible Beauty etc. etc. Me, I look at it and say:
“Yeah, beautiful. I bet that little ridge on the extreme right would make a great backstop if one were to set up some targets and steel plates so that one could blast away in relative comfort from the truck (or next to it), without causing any damage or noise issues (it being somewhat Remote & Desolate).”
Am I the only one who thinks like this?
And a tangential thought: does anyone know where that pic was taken? I’m guessing Utah or maybe Arizona…
Update: Reader RichK emails:
The location is in the Alabama Hills, part of the Owens valley of California, and is looking at the Sierras.
The high peak left of the road is Mt. Langley. The far one is Mt. Whitney. I have climbed both multiple times. Stunningly beautiful country. Sad to think it is part of California.
