Sunset, Eastern Sierra from the Owens Valley, California
We had planned to stay in Yosemite this October day in 2013, but the park was closed due to the government shutdown. So we headed over the Tioga Road to the eastern Sierra, and happened upon this sunset scene right along highway 395 just south of Lee Vining. I love the desert vegetation here and all along the Owens Valley, and was glad it showed up in this backlit scene.
