Sierra Nevada Range

Location: Near Bishop, California

Our friends, Mark and Rebecca, were kind enough to take us on a wonderful trip through the winter Sierra Nevadas. Many of the roads into the mountains -- and those into Yosemite -- were closed for the winter, but those that were open gave us remarkable views of the mountains blanketed in snow:






















In Bishop, I also got to see a gallery that has been on my "must do" list for many years -- that of Galen Rowell, the "Ansel Adams of Color." Mr. Rowell died in a plane crash in 2002, leaving the world of photography poorer for the loss. Many exceptional photos in his catalog of work remain on display in this gallery, and it was a treat for me to finally see them.

Ditto what Donna said! And I'll bet you shot some of those photos through a window of a moving car! Some people just know how to handle a camera.

Thanks for the kind words! And, yes, Sharon, I will confess to having shot some of them out the window.
