Sunrise, snow and sadness.

We spent the first weekend of 2010 back up in my favorite place, the eastern sierras.  The first morning we were up a couple of hours before sunrise, in time to drive up to Mono lake to try for some sunrise shots there.  The state park folks hadn’t plowed the road all the way to the lake, and there was a layer of fog settled in tightly over the lake  Since lake shots were a no-go, I turned my camera to the eastern wall of the Sierras, and was treated to a beautiful sunrise and setting moon.  Spent the rest of the weekend playing in the snow and the aspens, and then visited Manzanar National Historic Site on our way back to Los Angeles today.  We’ve probably driven past it a dozen times, and finally took a couple of hours to explore, learn and meditate on what a sad, sad episode this was for our country.
