THE WARM WEATHER!!
FLIP FLOPS!! SHORTS! SUNTAN LOTION!!
Last month when the thermometer here at home was at the freezing point, Ernie got on the internet and made reservations for the "Valley". He couldn't have timed it better.
Driving over, we traveled over the Sierra and dropped into
|IRON MAN IN "AFGANISTAN"|
This year, we were too early for the spring wildflower display. However, we did manage to get it right on Spring break a few years past. It was truly amazing. I couldn't stop taking pictures of the fields of flowers emerging from the sand and the rocks.
Returning home, we had to take the southern route to avoid any mountain passes THE WINTER STORM of the year that dumped a barrage of snow in the mountains, closing roads and stranding motorists for hours.
Anyway, sure was nice being warm for a few days!
