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!

rail fence in the mountains~~That's My World for March 3, 2009

Southern California doesn't have many wooden rail fences. Northern California does, but not in our desert areas. It's just too hot and sunny and dry! So, I was thrilled to find this one up in the mountains by my friend Barb's ranch! It is weathered, but still in fairly decent shape. I love to stop by Pinyon on my way to visit my horses. It's about 3,000 feet high and is a pleasant relief from the heat of the desert during the summer. And, this weekend was a warm one, so it was an enjoyable outing! That's my World for Tuesday, March 3, 2009.

what a nice blog & interesting post.My neighbor,when I was growing up, used to have one of those more suburban type split rail fences. I used to love sitting on it when I was a child.
Your warm weather sounds splendid!

It's amazing to me the fence is in that good of shape in a sunny desert area. Wood here likes to warp and split. I seeing it, though. It reminds me of fences and my uncles house when I was younger.
