    Safe travels Jim. If you're able to, swing by the house. I'd love to meet up for a cup of coffee or some lunch or something.

    Would it be helpful to provide an 'itinerary' for locations maybe for the first day in the field? (Location + time)

    I'm planning to join you guys. May bring Ari along. See you there!

    Just got home from the Hills. Actually, arrived after dark, watched the sun hit the Sierras in the morning and was going to just hit the road. After a couple weeks walking around the desert with the 8x10 I was sort of rocked-out, had enough sun and heat and wind, and there are just so many people there now all the time. I had a long way to drive to get home (~600 miles), wanted to stop in Bishop and still get home the next day.

    But I ended up making several images -- my 'new' Fuji 360W was just too much fun to use and I used it for a couple 4x10s -- as well as my Fuji W 250/6.7 . My Fuji W 300 is jealous. Cloud-less, but the morning light was very nice. Some flowers starting. There was even a little water running in for a short way in one of the creek beds. And of course there was a fellow with his truck stuck trying to cross it (tow truck already called). Long shots are getting harder to do without someone's camper, or the like, in one's photos. One wonders how long uncontrolled use of the area will be allowed to continue. Too many of us retired old farts!

    I like the idea of taking a Manzanar trip one morning or afternoon. It's a cool area with some unique spots.

    Sweet images, Forrest!

    We're getting spring showers -- don't know if that'll continue into May -- maybe bring rain gear just in case...

    The valley and shrub areas in the 'hills are super green this year!

    In March there still was some water in the creek that runs thru the Hills -- with the obligatory 4x4 stuck in the creek!

    Enjoy your time out there -- rain! You lucky ones!

    Need to remind myself to bring my Pull Pal.
