YEAH!!!! so, hope to see ya soon!

march 11

last night's drive through the desert, coming up to mammoth, was just glorious... we are very lucky this year because the wildflowers have already started to bloom and they are exploding on hillsides and all along the highways here in california... so i shot some pics of what i saw while driving!!! the clouds and the color of the sky was so beautiful for a whole hour before sunset....



here you can see the bright yellows on the side of the hills, just blooming!!!





mojave is really beautiful right now. usually it's brown and dusty and windy, and it's moist and just exploding with color!!!



more wildflower shots...



went to see my friend stacey board at the mammoth mountain inn last night after my show at canyon lodge, and the mountain still had a little bit of sunlight on it. it's been a stellar weekend here, warm temps, not a cloud in the sky... spring conditions... how long will this last????
