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!

Waterfall at Desert Springs~Rock Formations~Sunday Stills Challenge~102311

This beautiful waterfall in the desert is at the Palm Desert Desert Springs Marriott.  It is next to the self-parking lot and sometimes I walk over to it after dropping off hubby for work.  Sometimes there are cattle egrets next to it, but not on this morning.  I love to stop and just listen to it.  See the interesting rock work?  Sunday stills Challenge for October 23, 2011.

Yellow grasses~Mellow Yellow Monday~101711

While at the park on Saturday morning, I noticed these tall, yellow grasses.  I don't know what they are...maybe a variety of Pampas grass? Whatever they are, they certainly were doing well in the park!  Mellow Yellow Monday for October 17, 2011.

At the park~Sunday Stills Challenge~101611

This week's challenge was to have something in the foreground and when I went to the park yesterday, I saw this bench in front of one of the ponds there.  That isn't a real fisherman, either.  It's a statue.  He's been standing there for many, many years now!  It was a quiet morning at the park yesterday, but by afternoon, the kids are playing, families are having picnics and BBQs and the park gets quite busy!  Sunday stills Challenge for October 16, 2011.

Dunes to mountains~SkyWatch Friday~101411

Sand dunes and dead trees near Indio, CA on a stormy afternoon one day last week.  Now temps are back up in the 100's, unfortunately.  Our "cold spell" is gone and the weekend will be warm again, but on this afternoon, the sky was quite dynamic.  SkyWatch Friday for October 14, 2011.

Vanishing Point, the Sierra~Sunday Stills Challenge~100911

We found this field and fence up in the Sierra Nevada in June.  Hubby and I left to our trip the day after school was over.  I came home the previous afternoon, packed, and away we went the next morning.  I like how the fence seems to disappear...or does it?  Sunday Stills Challenge 100911
