Lone Pine California Vistas

Lone Pine, California, Vista 1

The town of Lone Pine, California is located along Highway 395 northwest of Death Valley National Park. Lone Pine was a location used in many western movies and some TV shows. It also provides one of the access points for climbing Mt Whitney (the highest point in the continental 48). The image above shows a clearing storm moving right to left across the Sierras. In the distance is just a sliver of Owens Lake (drained to provide water for Los Angeles).

The image below is taken from about the same location, but looking east towards the White Mountains. Lone Pine lies in the valley.

Trees, Sky and Clouds

A final set of images from my visit to Fort Churchill, these showing the line of trees kept alive by the meager waters of the Carson River.

Nevada Skies

Nevada Skies 1

These are more shots from Fort Churchill State Park, Nevada. (see previous post) These images are more about the sky and clouds than the ruins of the old fort. I was lucky enough to visit just as a storm was blowing across the Sierra Nevada … lucky for photography, not so lucky with strong winds blowing dust and dirt.

Interesting Clouds

Interesting Clouds

This is another photo that I ran across in my archive that I thought was of interest. I don’t remember the specific weather that was before or after this sunset. To me, it looks like it unstable air when there is a transition to or from stormy weather. Pleasant clouds, even if the weather wasn’t.

Fort Churchill Ruins

These are more of the “lost iPhone images” from my road trip in April 2021. The image above is with the wide angle lens. Revisiting the memories of that trip makes me think of doing another. But then I think of the increased cost of gas and I think that my road trip whim may be just that.

But who knows?
