Aspen road~Sunday Stills Challenge~091811
Hubby and I are once again up in the Sierra. This trip we are looking for early signs of fall, especially any aspen which are turning yellow. It's really too early for most aspen, but there are a few "early birds". We drove up the road outside of Bishop, up to South Lake yesterday. Along the way, I spotted a side road (our favorite kind of road) which was lined with aspen, so away we went. I parked the car and we walked back along it. Unfortunately, in my eagerness, I walked further than I should have and altitude sickness hit me about an hour later. I was dizzy, had a horrible headache, and started shaking. So, we stopped for a late lunch in Bishop at Jack's and after eating some food and drinking a large glass of ice tea, I felt better! Here is the road to the aspen.
