Cat Mountain, seen from I-15

Through the Sierras on the way back from a wine tasting festival in Sonora where George Thorogood stopped to say "hi" to us as we were dancing on the grass to the Blues, and he offered us some of his wine prior to his performance at one of the Winery's Blues concerts. Never knew it was him! till we saw him on stage because we never introduced ourselves, just chatted a bit about how no one else was dancing and other topics
Jim just had to jump in this freezing lake in the mountains

Approaching and stopping at Mono Lake where some strange foreigners dove in DUH! nothing but bugs & salt

I took pics of rocks and did half the climb instead of doing the full dangerous climb that Jim did here, at Mono Crators

Another lake, very muddy, Jim had to experiment

Views of Boundary Peak from the hot tub at this wonderful Bed & Breakfast in Benton

Jim in his geekiness going up this rocky mountain; me only halfway (scary) while I took pics of cool rocks.
