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!

Joshua Trees and Jet~Looking at the Sky on Friday 010711

While walking back to the parking lot from Barker Dam, at Joshua Tree National Park, I looked up and saw a jet. I stopped and took this photo and continued my walk. I like how all the joshua tree branches leaned into the photo! What do you think? Looking at the Sky on Friday for January 7, 2011.

Clearing the roads!!! Outdoor Wednesday for January 5, 2011.

Hubby took these pics above Bishop, CA. We were heading toward Mammoth, but the road got really icy and we didn't have chains with us, so we turned around. Along the way, this CalTrans snowplow passed us, probably heading to where we decided to not venture any more!!! We enjoyed our trip to the Sierras and can't wait to return! Outdoor Wednesday for January 5, 2011.

Lone Pine and the Sierras~That's My World 010311

Hubby and I headed for the hills (the Sierra Nevadas) for a 3 day vacation during Christmas break. We decided to stay in Lone Pine, which is one of the towns at the south end of the Sierras. I woke up very early on our first morning there and walked across the highway (Highway 395). And, this is what I saw! It had snowed in the mountains the afternoon and night before, but on this morning, the sun was out and the wind was blowing. In fact, it was blowing the snow off the snowcapped mountains! Several people were out with me, with their cameras, taking photos, too! That's My World for Tuesday, January 4, 2011.

Day One~Best photo of 2010 010211

I woke up early Thursday morning after a snowstorm on the peaks of the Sierras. It was a crisp and clear day and snow was blowing off the tops of the peaks. I had been wanting to get a photo of this and I was thrilled to actually see it happening! I actually took this photo on December 30,just a few days before the new year! When I woke up Friday morning, the wind was calm and this effect wasn't happening, so I'm fortunate that I actually saw it. Day One for January 2, 2011.

Weekend Reflections 010111~Sierras

Hubby and I drove up to South Lake near Bishop, CA this week. We love to drive through the houses on Starlight Road. After a recent snow storm, they were covered with snow. I stopped by this one house to take a photo of their broad windows. And, what were they reflecting? THIS mountain! Neat, huh? Weekend Reflections for January 1, 2011. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
