Our Little Corner of the World...





"A lake is the landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature.
It is earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature."
Henry David Thoreau


TheChief, Kelly and I took a little hike on Sunday to Emerald Lake...
No...it hasn't snowed for over a week...
but as you can see...it's starting to stick up in the mountains!!!

Kelly was so excited...she couldn't decide which she liked better...
playing in the snow or swimming in the lake!!!

  4. I love the mountain peeping out of the trees - our deserts may look the same, but we have nothing like this here!

    PS: although we do have snow - just not at this time of year!

    1. Small snowfalls in October are pretty normal here...so are daytime temps in the mid 60's and sometimes even the low 70's (F)!!!

    1. This is getting up to about 10000+ feet in altitude Grace...so the snow "sticks" more in the shade than down by town...in town it's still fall with beautiful color all around!!!

  9. I live in a ski town, but I've always enjoyed visiting Mammoth. I bet that lake was mighty chilly for a swim!

  12. She really likes the cold. Boz used to lie by the heater. I don't think he would have liked the Sierras!

  13. Kelly's got more padding and fur than Boz had Petrea!!!

  14. Spectacular scenery, and what a dog!

    I have not been in the Sierras- one part of the West I have yet to see.
