I don't think so, but my poor horses have even less attention than usual!
*First-Labor Day backpacking trip to Mt Langley
*Second-unexpected invite to go to Bishop last weekend to catch fall colors before they disappeared (according to the "Fall Color" report) The colors were disappointing, but two days away was still nice. And there were some REALLY cool CLOUDS!
A cold windy night in a tent
A tough hike to Lamark Lakes
Big Wind gusts at the lake
And more cool clouds-this one is over Mono Lake
And these were near South Lake Tahoe
Well, except for Griffin...The boy is ready to go...NOT!!!
We visited the South Lake Tufa (Mono Lake)
When you take 1000 pictures...how do you choose...
Icy mornings at Mammoth Lakes
Road to North Lake-Colors popping
Grass Lake-a hike to 10,000 ft
Shared Turkey and Swiss
We didn't see another soul on this hike. Quiet and Peaceful.
Griffin enjoyed the views as much as I did
North Lake-most colors were past peak due to an early snow/wind storm the week before
And then there was THIS
All campgrounds and "toilets" were closed, gated and padlocked
It didn't stop me or others from parking where we could and hiking/fishing/photographing.
A park ranger was driving around North Lake but did not ask anyone to leave.
We wouldn't have anyway. I pay BIG California Taxes and I am going to enjoy the environment if I want to.
Honestly I think we all should revolt against this nonsense...so instead of people using the outhouse facilities...you find TP by every rock and tree?
Griff is tired after hiking 6+ miles. Mother Earth provides a comfy leafy bed
Along the trail at Long Lake in Rock Creek Canyon
What is this? A DOG park? Griff found many new friends at this popular lake
Silver Lake on the June Lake loop.
A nice trip-but I would rather not do it alone.
