A view of the White Mountains across the Owens River…

I used to see these two guys hanging around here in the mid – 90’s…

A lot more water in the Owens River this year…

But a lot of dry and dead vegetation along the banks…

Heading back South, Michael and Liz wanted to check out the CO-OP in Independence, CA

Cool wall art and good coffee…

Some book shopping at the EASTERN SIERRA INTERPRETIVE ASSOCIATION…Visitor’s Center in Lone Pine, CA…

I bought this book at the smaller center( now abandoned next door), back in the 90’s, when Michael and Ally were little. Michael is now reading it…
