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!

Mariposa mural~Street Art~Sunday stills Challenge 080110

When we visit Yosemite National Park, we usually stay in Merced, CA. Merced is about an hour to the west of the park and as we drive into it, we pass through beautiful rollings hills and the little town of Mariposa, CA. Mariposa in Spanish means butterfly and they have another mural in town of all the species of butterflies which live near the city. Their mural is very clean and well-maintained. If you have a chance, do stop in Mariposa. It's a nice, friendly little town. At one time it, like many others, was a mining town. Sunday Stills Challenge for August 1, 2010.

I had no idea! We pass through Merced and Mariposa and that area all the time, going up and down 99. Thanks for sharing!
