10-02-20 – 10-04-20 – Autumn Roadtrip in Eastern Sierra


I took a road trip through the Eastern Sierra in search of autumn colors after a long, hot summer of isolation. While I encountered a lot of smoke from the devastating wildfires that plagued California this summer, I also found beauty. This trip took in Alabama Hills, Lake Tahoe, Virginia Lake, June Lake Loop, Lake Crowley, and Bishop Creek Canyon, as well as numerous dirt trails.

The Eastern Sierra is a region in California comprising the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada, which includes Mono and Inyo Counties. The main thoroughfare is U.S. Route 395, which passes through Bridgeport, Lee Vining, Bishop, Big Pine, Independence, Lone Pine, and Olancha, with Bishop being the largest city in the area. It is sparsely populated but well known for its scenery; major points of interest include Mono Lake, Bodie, Mammoth Lakes, Manzanar, and parts of Yosemite National Park and Death Valley National Park.

A short drive from Lassen Volcanic National Park is the Subway Cave, in Lassen National Forest. Subway Cave is actually a lava tube, formed about 20,000 years ago. It’s also a great place to cool off and explore.

05-24-14 – Mono Lake for Camelopardalids




I raced out to Mono Lake after work to set up to try to capture the Camelopardalid meteor shower. While the meteor shower didn’t quite live up to the more optimistic projections, I was treated to a lovely sunrise, and as I headed north, I saw a hot air balloon practicing in a nearby field.

05-04-14 – Petrified Forest National Park




I spent the better part of a day driving through Petrified Forest National Park. It so much more than some tree fossils! Blue Mesa, Painted Desert, pueblos, petroglyphs… it is a gem of our National Park system.
