You doing fine I hope, Blanch?


Those thunderstorms were big!!
My camp is fine, although at one point the water looked like it was reaching flash flood level. I thought I might have to hitch up and try to pull out. Then I remembered the trailer is insured for replacement if totaled, and I thought grab the dogs and important papers and go. Just about then the rain stopped. LOL

The only real causality was my slippers. They are soaked and muddy.

Thanks for asking. The fires near Yosemite are causing some smoke on this side of the mountain and we have been having thunderstorms every afternoon.

Ferguson Fire in California.
Now the smoke is awful.
This is this evening.

This is last evening when there were thunderstorms and some smoke and a very bright sun.

Last evening I was photographing Mono Lake. Today I am just taking it easy and trying to not exert myself. Maybe I’ll head to the desert tomorrow for some fresh air. Time to break out the nebulizer.

The wildfires this year are crazy.

Not yet, hopefully the winds will shift. I love it too much here. This always feels like home.

I'm really glad. You be careful and take care of yourself, though. (Worrywart living in a state where nothing too crazy ever happens, weatherwise.)

OK , but remember your home is on fire ......
Your lungs don't work so well full of smoke.
You're more important than the trees. !

Moving day Tuesday. My time in the Eastern Sierras is almost over. I just love it here.

I did some ghost towning and this was my favorite shot.

This one is my second favorite.

Both of these were taken in Nevada on Hwy 95 between Las Vegas and Reno.

Don't know what it is about dilapidated trucks, but I just love them.

This one seems to be saying “I’ve been through hell and I’m still standing”.

I love old beat up trucks!
