Re: The Wilderness

I don't know how bad the Bodie road is now, but 30-odd years ago I took that 13 miles of "graded dirt" road at probably 5-10 mph, often releasing the steering wheel so the car could have its head, hoping to save the shocks and the ball joints, but for every pothole on that "road" there's a boulder ...

Re: The Wilderness

Thanks, Steve. We were at Mono more times that we could count but never went to Trona, possibly because I destroyed a car going to Bodie once.

Those colors darken blue, and being at higher altitudes makes the sky darker to begin with. If you don't mind telling, where are these formations? I think they are generally call...

Re: For Purple Mountain Majesties

Breathtaking. Wonderful light, Golden Hour looks like. If you don't mind telling, where is that? It's a funny story. I've always wanted to visit the Tron Pinnacles so I added it to a trip up the 395. I had planned to shoot in the morning and move on but was so taken with the place I stayed over and...
