June 29, 2017 - Peter Roesner (Switzerland) went to Hill 582 and took 90 photos

The fascination of Hill 582 was captured with digital photography showing the beauty of this spot in Cajon Pass. It is not only a great train railfan place, but also an oasis with trees, bushes, cactus and benches provided by the "Hilltender" Don E. Toles and his friends.
We all say thank you for making this little paradise possible.
Toward the late afternoon, the sun is coming from the back and we can enjoy the effect of light and shadow.
