Camping trip, Day 2

Eastern Sierras in June

After a leisurely breakfast of cheesy scrambled eggs, Canadian bacon, OJ and tea, we trekked an hour or two north to the town of Lee Vining on the shores of Mono Lake.

The lake is pretty famous for its tufa formations. We wandered the shores and took some shots, then headed further north to the well-preserved ghost town of Bodie.

As the afternoon progressed, we decided to head back to Mono Lake to quietly revel in 'golden hour' amongst the tufa formations.

Then it was back up the mountain to our little orange tent to brave the ensuing wind storm ...
Sunset, high Sierras.

... enjoying an awesome sunset on the way.

Your photos of Bodie are great -- I can only imagine what it must have felt like to be there in person...

walking under that sky, wind outside the tent, sounds - and looks - pretty fabulous. (takes your breath away while you're catching it.)
