Last summer I was heading up into the eastern Sierras. I love it there. Anywhere along highway 395 is spectacular. Before putting on my pack and hiking up into some elevation I took an afternoon and evening and camped out along the road near Mono Lake. I’d driven by there many time before but never really explored the area. Here was my chance. Before sunset I went over to the south shore of the lake where the larger limestone rock formations, called tufa’s, are and joined many other sunset gazers and photographers to watch the show. Good fortune placed some nice cloud cover to the east as the sun was setting in the west. The more the sun set, the richer the cloud color.
