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!
hey Bo…arent’t road trips the best! ESPECIALLY in the mountains. I love it when Scotty & I take a trip into the Rocky Mtns, so, so beautiful and peaceful. I’m always in my element up there. Maybe someday we will LIVE in the moutains! wow…
you’re fortunate to live by such beauty!
Yes… I couldn’t get over how beautiful it was there on Haskell Peak… the best thing about this road trip was the unexpected… heading down to Bassett’s and turning left instead and taking a route we didn’t plan! This is a great place to live!
We just went to Sand Pond while we were vacationing in Graeagle. Did you pass through Graeagle to get to Sand Pond?
