Owen’s Valley

My family and some of our friends have a tradition of spending a week each August with my grandparents in the desert east of the Sierras, in Lone Pine, CA. Here are some photos from our stay. Incidentally, we had a biggest-in-fifteen-years summer storm early in the week which even wetted the desert with an amazing day-long drizzle. A few of these pictures benefit from that rarity.

I had a good time photo-geeking out with my friend Jim, a far more experienced photographer than I, who snapped this gem while the ground was still wet and the lighting was just right to bring out the color of the land. I also, as it turns out, feel well-recreated after some time in the desert and mountains and away from the Internet(!).
