Whatever Weds. Carson Valley Fall Morning

This image is one I made last week. It was a gorgeous morning so, my next-door neighbor and I headed out to look for Fall colors earlier than planned. The morning did not disappoint.

This is my favorite image from the morning. I had it printed. It’s now hanging in my living room.  Do you print any of your images? If not, why not?

Whatever Weds. This and That

I thought I’d share several images I’ve made in the last few weeks and have been working on to share.

Golden Hour over the 13th Fairway, the Eastern Sierras, and the marsh as seen looking southwest from my patio.

A new bird for me! A Rough-winged Swallow with lunch.  If I have not made the correct ID for this one please let me know!

Last Friday a friend came up for a Doctor’s appointment and spent the night, but after her appointment, we went out exploring my area looking for some Nevada Wild Mustangs; we had Lady Luck with us b/c we found a small band!  Doing a little research we discovered that this  Black/Blue Stallion is called Zorro.

Here’s one of Zorro’s band members with some Hitchhikers.

I’m looking forward to getting to know the Wild Mustangs of Nevada and this band.

To close out this week’s post I’ll share a sunset from last week. This was made while I was on my patio.

I hope you’re all having a great week so far, and as they say out here in the Valley, let’s get our Hump Day Dance on and bump those hips! 😂

Whatever Wednesday- Storm Clouds over Job’s Peak

Job's Peak under Clouds

The view from my backyard all week has been cloudy with some rain.  In between He-Man and I have gone out hiking twice each time on a new trail.  If you follow me on Instagram you’ve seen some images of the trail there.

Our hike on Monday was a 5.3-mile loop that wiped me out.  In Silicon Valley, I lived 257 ft above sea level. Here I’m 4,750 ft above sea level and the hike took us up to nearly 6,000 feet.  I was huffing and puffing and light-headed for most of it.  I am out of shape and not used to this elevation yet. A sinus infection and plugged ears didn’t help, but I hope this summer’s hikes get me ready for snow-shoeing this winter!

The weather may be unsettled here this week, but we are settled and on the road to discovering new trails and sights.  I hope you’re feeling settled in and finding some time to enjoy the outdoors this week.
