We once again made our annual journey to the east side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, where the colors of autumn were at their peak.

Ken Rockwell - of fame - graciously accepted the role of co-leader; his seminar on our first night opened some eyes, including mine (and helped lead me to my new-found passion with the camera in the phone).

With or without a camera phone or a DSLR, we photographed the aforementioned fall colors, the tufa towers of Mono Lake (where we enjoyed a canoe ride, compliments of the Mono Lake Committee), as well as the ghost town of Bodie. Some of my photographs from the long weekend are, I think, among my most creative, in no small part because of the company of enthusiastic photographers with whom I traveled.

We'll do it all again next year - check here for updates on the workshop schedule.

Hot Spring Under Flashlight Conditions
As per the earlier photograph, this is the hot spring above the little town of Bridgeport. Chuck Nadeau receives major credit for his photograph, which I worked on with him. It was his vision and his camera and his push to visit the hot spring and so it's mostly his photograph.
Hot Spring on a Cold Night
Trip participant Chuck Nadeau wanted to visit hot spring in the hills east of Bridgeport. He queried our group to see if anyone wanted to join him.

There was only one person willing enough to accompany Chuck.

It started off well - we had a map and the first turn came up about a half mile out of town, off of Highway 395. "This must be the dirt road!" Chuck enthused, turning onto a dirt track that looked passable by someone on foot equipped with grappling hooks.

"Are you sure, Chuck? It doesn't look like anyone's driven up this road in a while."

"Yeah, the map says a dirt road with a fence line on our left. This has to be it!"

Somehow, perhaps through the graces of the God I don't believe in, we topped out in Chuck's little Honda after a mile of slipping and sliding on a dirt track that. After turn around and surviving the downhill portion of the ride, we turned back onto what we were sure was the right road, only to find ourselves inexplicably back at Highway
