After spending a wonderful Thanksgiving together with the Cappel family as well as Bill and Suzie we continued our travel south, with a short stop in Reno to change the car to an all-wheel-drive which was a good idea, because shortly after that on our way to Mono Lake we had to go over a pass and there was snowslush, we didn’t want to go through with the summer tires….
The weather in Lee Vining at the Mono Lake permitted some evening shots of the stars above. Click on the image to show a high-resolution image.
We then continued towards the Death Valley, with the usual stop in Bishop for a snack from Shat’s Bakery. We stayed in Death Valley for two nights, the first one was clear and made us get out of bed by 12.30 am and drive a few miles to a spot to take some pictures of the Milkyway and some shooting stars.
Now we have reached Flagstaff, Arizona on our way to the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge where we hopefully will be able to get the pictures of snow geese and cranes we are looking for. Stay tuned…
