    Re: Planning Roadtrip for June in Middle/Western USA

    One-week check-in. Went to DV this morning and I enjoyed the mild 110F temps . Seriously a summer day in Florida at 100% humidity is worse IMO!

    Anyway, I just got gas at $6.05 and am making my way to Mono Lake.

    Ha! Gas at Lee Vining (Mono Lake), or worse, Bridgeport slightly further north, was always two dollars higher than anywhere else in the State. Wonder if it's still like that. If so,expect $8.50 per gallon; but appreciate the fact you aren't driving a huge motorhome hauling a Jeep plus a boat. I never have been able to figure out that crowd. My nephew once had to leave all his climbing gear hostage at the garage in Lee Vining while getting his pickup fixed there. I drove over the range with cash, and bailed him out. Mono Lake itself can be pretty hot this time of year except morning and evening, when the light is best anyway.

    That's where the ancestors of the Indians I grew up with came from. Hard to say when, but maybe around 1200 AD militant bands of them decided to take over much of the West slope of the range too, and displaced the former Yokuts to the San Joaquin Valley and lower margins of the hills, that is, until modern Casino culture reinvented certain bands of Yokuts, using, among others, the descendants of those who exterminated those same Yokuts hamlets in the first place. What do they call that these days? - oh yeah, "alternate history". Anything for a buck, or rather, a few hundred million bucks.

    Glad you survived DV....tho brace yourself for some possible heat in certain areas (Calif). Coastal parts and higher elevations exempted.

    Hope you were able to get some nice images. Best of luck.

    On occasion I noticed there is real life outside the GG/viewfinder.

    Hit 80F in my backyard the last two days, a heat wave! Up to a half-inch rain expected this weekend (should be great under the redwoods). Then more reasonable temperatures the next week (60s)...'partly coudy'.

    We might have hit 80 today; but it's over 100 just over the ridge inland, where the coastal airflow is blocked. Due to drop 10F tomorrow, and another 10 Sunday. Maybe back to our normal June highs in the mid-50's here by Tues or so.
