We’ve just returned from our trip along the last ~1/3 of the John Muir Trail in the Sierra Nevada. It was pretty fantastic, and I think the “mozzies” could have been a lot worse than they were (this is good news for someone who once had the nickname “Skeeter Bait!”). I’ll be writing a lot about this trip in the next few weeks, but I thought it only appropriate to choose an image from the Sierra for my August Photo of the Month.
This image is from our first campsite on our journey, Minaret Lake, which is behind Mammoth Lakes, California. At dawn, I found a great little cascade to use as a foreground element while the morning light illuminated the Minarets in the background. It certainly is rugged country up there, and I like the way this image displays that. Hope you enjoy it!
Over the next few days, I hope to update albums with some new images–stay tuned!
