I’m so excited to share this trip with you! I have taken the drive up and down the state of California more times than I can even count. It’s a long and boring drive. I was talking with some girlfriends and they suggested I try a different route. Well. That never occured to me. I thought it would be so much longer to go that way (and it actually was), that it wouldn’t be worth it. But, I know this highway and the beautiful scenery, and I wanted to try it out! My son, Jesse, was also excited to take this route.
It was raining when we left. I checked the weather, it said it was also raining in the mountains. Well, when we got there, it was full on snowing!! Don’t worry, I have 4 wheel drive and I carry chains, which we did not need. It was so pretty. After we came down from the mountain pass, it was just one gorgeous scene after another. Here are a few of my pics. And, I have a lot of the scenery in my video.
I love these rock formations that were just everywhere. Otherworldly.
These clouds. Oh my. I just love how the sun tinged them yellow. And, it also made a very dramatic black and white. Which do you prefer?
Clouds. I just love them. These dramatic clouds….I just love them.
Mono Lake, which by itself is very spectacular, was even more beautiful framed by these clouds.
As I post this, I am longing to be there again right now! So, until my next adventure….
