A Walk Around My Place

Walking north on the road I maintain by simply driving on it. 

Errol's cement mixer, to the right, has now become a yard ornament.

Fabulous clouds inspire me to take pictures. Winter is such a good time for taking cloud pictures here. During our summers, the sky is usually blue, every day -- blue.

Facing east, I have a view of the Sierra Nevada mountains not far from their southern boundary at the Tehachapi Pass. Within these mountains lies the only item on my Bucket List: To catch a view of Mount Whitney, the tallest mountain in the lower 48 states. The tallest mountain in the U.S., Denali in Alaska, I can only dream of.

I love mountains, I've spent time in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, I've hiked and camped in California's Sierra Nevada mountains and I've lived at the foot of the Grand Tetons.  And now Mount Whitney is just up the road a ways. I googled the distance: 142.1 miles from our town. A little bit less from here. 

And back at my house, check out that dramatic sky!

I hope you enjoyed this walk around my place.
