3 Days in the Desert

I took a little roadtrip this past weekend to a little remote strip in California.  There were also many stops in other cities in Nevada that have also been on my list for a long time.  Lots of driving (about 2,000 miles) and breathing in sandy & smokey dust.  The dogs got a lot of running & sniffing in big vast nothingness.  Not so much shooting but still some great stuff.  Let’s get to it.

From Kernville — where you can see the smoke in the background from nearby, raging forest fires:


Detail of the diver & trees:

From the Walker Pass Lodge in Onyx.  This looks to be a modern creation:


From the Olancha RV & Motel in Olancha, CA.  Apparently, rent-able canvas teepees:


From Grant, CA.  Looks like a former market:


Two signs from the Pines Cafe in Independence, CA.  You can just barely make out the pine tree in the first photo:



From Bishop, CA:


From Lee Vining, CA:


That’s it for the Friday sampling.  More photos from the same day of the “nicer” stuff over at my Flickr account here:

More California stuff & then moving on to Nevada in the next post which I’ll throw together later tonight or tomorrow.

Happy trails,

dj & the dogs
