We are snuggly tucked into the Horton Creek BLM Campground just north of Bishop, CA, with our caravan buddies Nina and Paul. This was more of an impromptu camping stop after weather reports of dipping temps and snow predictions in the June Lake area had us all collectively saying, “we’re outta here”. Nina, ever so resourceful, went online and found this little gem. There were no reviews to check out so we were relying solely on her instincts and she hasn’t steered us wrong yet. We threw caution to the wind and said “let’s go”. Her talent for seeking out new and interesting places, well, is just AWESOME!
This place has it all, expansive skies, sprawling desert, 360º mountain views, and Mother Nature has just sprinkled a dusting of snow on the mountaintops after a much-needed rainstorm blew through yesterday.
We are due down in the San Diego area in a couple of weeks and our nomadic ways will end for a few months. Until then we are enjoying every sunrise, every walk in the desert, and every sunset ~ all the ever-changing moods nature has to offer.

What great pictures. I’m so glad you are having such a good time. Are your friends going to continue South with you?
We are heading to the Lone Pine area together then going our separate ways. They are a great couple so it has been lots of fun. Hope all is well with you Joan and you are getting in some hiking. 🙂
Doing Limantour Beach to Arch Rock, tomorrow.
Very good! 🙂
Gorgeous scenes… especially love the rainbow and sunset! Sounds like you’re truly enjoying your gypsy ways!
So far, so good. Thanks Gunta! 🙂
Oh my stars, simply gorgeous. What a beautiful land. I wanna be a nomad in my next life. 🙂
Perhaps you will be. 🙂
Great photos! Especially, the sunset!
I am following and you do have an interesting blog. I also adore Nina and Paul’s blog.
Thanks Susan. I apologize for the delay in responding. Your comment was sitting in my spam file. Nina and Paul do have a fantastic blog, both gifted writers and Nina is an amazing photographer.
Beauty surrounds you on all sides in all ways! Just lovely!!!
This country has so much to offer, doesn’t it Marsha?
Ah, green with envy. So ready to unload this house and be out there full-time. Beautiful, beautiful photos. FYI…I replied to you yesterday on my blog, but it posted as a seperate comment….more fatigued from my travels than I thought 🙂 Enjoy!
Thanks Ingrid. I will check out your blog as I have done this numerous times when I attempted to reply to someone. Have a great weekend! 🙂
Lone Pine, my old trout fishing stomping grounds. Guess it is probably getting pretty cold up there. Depending on your time in Lone Pine, Manzanar, the WW II Japanese internment camp is just a few miles north. You might want to check that out. Or you might go west to the Whitney Portals where people begin their climb up to the summit of Mt. Whitney. On the way there, you will see and perhaps imagine Gene Autrey, Roy Rogers or Hopalong Cassidy riding along in that area. Many of their western movies were shot there. Whatever you do, have a great time and be careful traveling on Highway 395. Roger & Gayl
We are still at Horton Creek near Bishop. You must be reading our minds Roger and Gayl because we are planning to stop in Lone Pine next before we head to Encinitas. Manzanar, the Whitney Portal, and the Alabama Hills are all on our list. Hope to see you both soon. 🙂
[ Smiles ] Thank you for showing those breathtaking pictures.

We have your little space ready for you…just say the word! 🙂 How is the weather where you are?
Word! 🙂 Seriously the weather is quite good, a bit breezy but cool nights and warm days, very autumny!
Love that first photo! Absolutely awesome gallery.
Will be looking forward to your arrival to SD. I got a present if you do plan to see me. Hehe.
I am hoping to get a chance to meet you. We will be in the San Diego area from November 1 through the end of January so I think we can probably coordinate a visit. A present you say? 🙂
Great pics and blogs, thanks! Plan to visit this area one day. Regards, Jack
Thanks Jack! I appreciate you paying me a visit. Have a great weekend. 🙂
I think I may sense your echo here…we pulled into Horton a few hours ao. There’s quite a bit more snow on the mountains now, but as beautiful as you describe. We are heading out for some hiking this week, again following in your footsteps, quite literally perhaps!
