We had a great Christmas with our family... It was busy (typical, right?), but great.
The day after Christmas we felt needed a little adventure. Things have been a little hectic, a little stressful - nothing like a little trip to the Eastern Sierra to get you feeling good again. But, I will admit, it was too short- the medicine was just starting work and it was over.
I could only handle one night. The high during the day was in the 40s, and the low at night was low 20s. COLD. I am not used to cold weather, so I was hurting. Not to mention, we had wet wood and we couldn't get the fire to start for two hours, two long hours.
We are definitely going back to the Alabama Hills, there is much more to explore.
We went down the road called "Movie Road" - which has been the set for many a Western movie. The place is amazing, the rock formations are so cool, and the back drop of the Sierra was beautiful - especially with all the snow.
We drove down many dirt roads, we hiked to an arch, we ate in Lone Pine, we stopped by Fossil Falls, we stopped by the Indian Wells brewery- it was a good, fun-packed two-day trip.
I have a feeling we are going to need one more before I go back to work on the 4th.... we'll see what we can squeeze in.
Did you have a good holiday?
