40 degrees this morning
Yup. Last night was definitely colder than the previous one. I can feel it this morning. The blue jays were squawking at 5:00 a.m. and the squirrels were out looking for peanuts and food by 5:30 a.m. Good thing I'm an early riser! Unfortunately, I've picked up a darn COLD and I feel miserable today...we're supposed to drive out to Bodie state park this afternoon, so I'm hoping to just rest this morning and maybe take a nap. Ahhhh....the joys of vacation! It sure is nice being out of the 111 degree desert heat, however! Right now 5 blue jays are out on the porch and 1 squirrel is eating the sunflower seeds I put out! Here are a couple of scenes from Lake Marie, which is above Mammoth Lakes at over 8,000 feet, yesterday afternoon. No, I didn't take these...hubby did, with his wide angle lens. While I LOVE my 55-200 mm zoom, there ARE times when a wide angle captures a scene better, like here. It should be 36 degrees tomorrow morning up here. What a relief from the 109 degrees down in the desert!
