Walk in the Sierras

Leaving Jimbo and Buddy’s house, we passed through the high Sierra Mountains, through Donner Pass.

The pass is up there somewhere in the snowy part of those mountains.

We stopped for a walk because…well, because it was so nice.

Lots of trees to see, and lots to sniff, depending on which of us you're talking about.

I got Chico to stand still long enough for this nice picture.

But it really didn't last very long.

After a few minutes we came upon what looked like someone’s semi permanent campsite/house, so we went back to the car and, after I backed into a tree and broke my tail light cover (Oooops. Making more use of that back-up camera that came with the car – perhaps I could work on that.) got on the way again, headed for Ely, NV and the Bristlecone Pine Inn. Which was not quite as set-in-the-trees as its name would indicate, but provided a clean bed, shower, and microwave for my supper can of soup.
