Yesterday, Denise and I took a day trip up above Sierra City. We found this nice spot overlooking the Sierra Buttes from Haskell Peak — I whipped out my PowerBook and fired it up. And… which one of my dozens of random desktop photos do you suppose came up on the monitor? Yep! A shot of the Buttes from the other side, which I took back in 1978! Those are some impressive rocks!
Later, we took a stroll on the Sand Pond Interpretive Nature Trail, which was lovely and then, on a lark, drove home through Sierraville via Highway 89. I had forgotten how big and absolutely beautiful it is there. We capped it all off with a very good meal at Los Dos Hermanos at the junction of Highway 49 and 89. The chili colorado was some of the best I’ve had and that’s saying a lot, coming from a vato viejo from barrio South Whittier!
