Alfred Hitchcock sighting in the Tucson Mountains

Forget that lame-ass rock that the Sabino Canyon tram drivers say looks like Snoopy on his doghouse. This is an authentic cameo appearance by Alfred Hitchcock himself. Best viewed from just north of downtown, look west to the Tucson mountains. Locate the high peak with the radio towers on top, then scan to the left, to the next high peak, just north of Gates Pass. Doesn't the crenellated ridgeline of that peak look just like Alfred Hitchcock in profile? See him in his dignified repose, with his face to the eternal desert sky? Once you spot him, you'll wonder how you missed him all these years.
