I took this photo in the eastern Sierras, off Highway 395, at the Owens Gorge Road. I love those mailboxes and every time we travel to the Sierras, we drive by them just to see them!

Scenic Sunday February 8, 2009 fence post


I love finding fields with fence posts in them and this one was at the Coachella Valley Preserve on Washington Street. If you enlarge it you can see our mountains behind it, covered with clouds. While it was cloudy yesterday, there were occasional breaks in the clouds giving us just enough of a glimpse of blue sky to believe that yesterday's storm was breaking. Our mountains received fresh snowfall and we need that here in our desert, since we get our water from both the Colorado River and our huge underground aquafer from snow runoff. A beautiful day for Scenic Sunday!

Very scenic and interesting shot. I also like those fence post takes! Looks like you had perfect weather for a little bit of photohiking! We are supposed to get some rain today. Enjoy the day.

Those mountains are awesome!

I think you're the first person I've encountered who has actually shown gratitude for snowfall. Bless you.
