Cabin Creek Lakes, Sawtooth Mountains, Idaho

I woke a little earlier, in time to stroll down to the lake just as the sun hit the far shore, I think this is my favourite picture I’ve taken of Pettit lake.

I though these would be man made tanks like those for cattle, but not at all! I drove rightContinue reading “Mojave Snowbird Trip – Horse Tanks”

As I drove through the gap I happened to look over at exactly the right moment to see a tiny arch high on theContinue reading “Mojave Snowbird Trip – Tank Arch”
