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!

Road Trip~Sierras~Scenic Sunday~042411

Hubby and I have just returned from a 6 day road trip through the eastern Sierras. I was off this past week for spring break and he also had some time off, so away we went! Our last trip there was in December, 2010 and we were anxious to get back to see how much snow there was. And, yes, there was a LOT~ in fact, it snowed up in Mammoth and North and South Lake (above Bishop) while we were there. That was okay...we enjoyed seeing the snow! We spent our first night up in Hesperia, so that cut an hour off Sunday's driving time. Upon arriving in Lone Pine, we drove out to the Alabama Hills, hubby's favorite spot. The next day, we drove up to Aspendell Lake, which is north of Bishop. It was cold and windy and by afternoon, it was snowing! Brrrrrrrr! Here are some photos from our first two days. No, those aren't birds in the photos! My Nikon was SO DIRTY and had dust on the mirror and hubby tried to blow it off, but it just blew to another area! :-( So, I put my camera away and used hubby's for the rest of the trip. When we got home, he took it to our local camera store for a cleaning (which usually would take only 10 minutes, but mine took 30!) The guy asked, "Where does your wife store her camera, in a BARN?"...okay, okay...I get the message! From now on, I keep it in an old camera bag, away from horses, dust, alfalfa, and dirt! :-) Scenic Sunday for April 24, 2011.

So your camera needs a good cleaning...LOL. Beautiful vistas of the Eastern Sierras. Amazing how much snow there still is. Looks like you had a fun break.
