ALL SEASONS -BEGIN OCTOBER

  1. I love those strong rocks! Rock formations always fascinate me. They are such an artistic contrast to trees and lakes. It’s amazing that there’s still snow on the mountains. I hear it snowed in Tahoe this week, so likely those mountaintops won’t be clear of snow this year!

  2. I love that drive. It’s been many years since we’ve done it. Need to change that one day. I liked your different style of writing today. I was right there with you staying in the car. lol

  3. You make me laugh! My husband would realize I was missing because nobody would be yelling for him to stop so she could take a picture ))…in country like that I’d be hollering to stop every few feet….I’m glad you did too! And yeah, that coffee shop might leave a little to be desired, but I could do without my latte for the views! …. thank you for the beautiful pictures, the words that made me laugh, and fir hosting.

    1. Sallie, have forgotten if you can see my comment, but I’ll check afterwards! Mind you, hub does not stop, he is driving the car (is moving), while I’m taking the shots. His reaction time and mine, greatly differ greatly, so am doing this without talking, but he would miss me, because in the seat next to him there would not be anyone putting herself in impossible positions to take another angle:)

  4. So how many miles for this 2 hour trip – the scenery is amazing by the way. So different to here in Western Australia. Happy travels and thanks again for the link up. I can’t believe it is October!

  5. Dearest Jesh,
    Well, you are so right about following the state roads instead of the big roads!
    We enjoyed following US Route 93 in Arizona and part of Route 66.
    I’ve only driven from the Hoover Dam to Boulder City for our night at the Hyatt Place before turning back. LOVED it though.
    You show us more fabulous photos here.
    Had to laugh about your forgotten goat cheese and towels… haha, we always forget something!
    But we had to fly in, so there is not that much to carry along.
    Hugs,
    Mariette

    1. Thank you Debra – storm? Oh yes, with thunder and lightening and rain – and most of all cold! We went to low forties yesterday night and will tonight too. So we do have the wood stove on. But this year Hubs was on the ball and had already prepped all the wood, situated for the winter, just the day before!Officially, we are underneath the snow line – so no snow yet. Did you get snow?

    2. No, not here in the valley, but the mountains on both sides of us did. The Pine Nut Mountains melted already, but the Eastern Sierras are gorgeous with snow on them. It’s 49 degrees here. That’s our high today. Lots of our neighbors are shutting off their outside water for winter. He-Man is waiting until the middle of the month. It’s supposed to warm up again next week. We’ll see.

      Sounds cozy by the fire!

    1. Thank you Carol -of all places, this is the most beautiful! It also means though that we are 1 1/2 hrs. away from stores, and from family. But it’s much better than 7 hrs. drive from South. CA for each holiday to see the grandkids and their parents!

  6. That’s scenery I never see, you’re so lucky to have it accessible, very beguiling. That lake looks pretty cold but much cleaner than the ones that surround us, but I always have at least one towel in the car ready to go.

  7. How I love the mountains. The extinct volcano and the layers of sedimentary rock are stark reminders of how we occupy such a tiny speck of time in our galaxy among millions of galaxies, all disappearing into their black holes. Although it has been 15 years since we left our mountain home to live in Florida, my mind hearkens back to the crunch of snow beneath my boots and smell of pine needles and Ponderosa bark.

    1. Thank you! California is so versatile, (that’s why it’s so popular to live here) not only beaches and desert, but also cities and mountain areas as high as 9000 feet. I live at 3000 feet, just under the snowline. Se still get snow though, only it disappears in a few days, instead of a few weeks or months.

    1. Hello Moni – many thanks for your lovely link up of the red berries. I thoroughly enjoyed that view. I will have to wait another 2 months before red berries are ripe, where I live! So thank you for giving me a foretaste of what is to come:):) Have a lovely week, Jesh
