Eastern Sierra from the Alabama Hills, Owens Valley, California

This section of the Sierra includes Lone Pine Mountain and Mount Whitney, the highest mountain in the contiguous US. Ansel Adams took his famous "Winter Sunrise, Sierra Nevada" near this location
Roving Storm, White Mountains, California
On my way to visit the bristlecone pines at the Grove of the Patriarchs, I ran across this scene. The storm cloud had drifted from the left to right over this interesting high-elevation valley. See the "Trees" portfolio for some photos of the bristelcone pines.
