Sawtell Peak

We'd heard about Sawtell Peak and decided it was a must-see. It took us about 40 minutes to drive to the top, the last 10 minutes being a little terrifying (for me). You've got switchbacks with steep drop-offs and no railing. But once we got to the top, it was like being on top of the world. It seemed like we were as high as the clouds and the view was incredible.
Off in this direction you can see the water around Bill's Island, where we stayed.

And there's this...observatory? We called it the "soccer ball."

Off in this direction you get a great view of Henry's Lake.

I was happy the kids stopped to pick wildflowers and didn't get any closer to the edge.

They brought their several bouqets back for Grandma and the aunts, but they were quickly sent outside once some of us started having allergic reactions to them. They were so pretty, though.
