You're going to assume I've never seen snow before. Not true! It's the juxtaposition of the snow and the high plains that surprised me.

|9000 feet up. The road was closed due to snow.|
|That's the road running thru the center of the photo.|
|Just plain weird - a 2-faced lamb. Yes, another face on the other side of the head.|
|Brands, branding irons and a barbed wire display.|

60 degrees in town, 35 on the car thermometer when I took the snowball photo.
Sorry about the Ripley's-style photo of the lamb. It was just too strange to ignore. That someone would stuff it after it died was kind of strange as well.
What's truly amazing about driving out here is knowing not that long ago wagons loaded with settlers were making their way thru this same scrub land and over these mountains. How? It boggles the mind. We walked just a little bit out on these high plains and the brush is thorny and unforgiving and it grows so close together!
Next up - Mono Lake.
