Another Stop-and-Stare Moment
I am going back in time a bit, by a few hours. This should have been posted before yesterday's. This was taken while stopping on an overlook for another breathtaking view of the Highway 395. This highway climbs up and down and down we will go after this brief stop to stretch our legs. The rain had stopped a bit at this time, but the wind was gusty, it was a huge effort to keep the camera focused. This is the only shot I had from that overlook; the wind was too strong to even keep one's balance so off we went.
On the left you see is Mono Lake which would be a destination for the third day. The mountain range on the right is Sierra Nevada, and we thought we spotted Mt. Whitney, the highest point in the contiguous US. This stretch of 395 from Carson City to Bishop CA is about 171 miles of gorgeous vistas and changing topography.
