I already talked to Danna about that. I may not be taking any photos of them together.
Maybe a shot like at "The Sisters" in Sedona.

A photograph is like a joke. If you have to explain it, it just isn't that good.

Okay folks. Sorry I didn't update our adventures yesterday. It was a very long day of driving.
In our travels we did find THE London Bridge in Lake Havasu City.



Apparently they moved the darned thing from England over to here and it was re-dedicated in October of 1971.

Now that we are up to date (so to speak), today we went and spent the day at Wolf Mountain. It's a wolf sanctuary, and it's open to the public.
They do a wonderful job of rescuing some wonderful majestic animals.
If you can manage the trip, I highly recommend it.

The wolves really wanted to get a hold of my little buddy.
Here is Tonya, who runs the sanctuary, holding the Photo Camel so that the wolves wouldn't eat him.


We decided to let the Camel stand on his own four feet. So we went outside of the pen, closed the gate, and then set him down.
They still wanted to try to get him.



That was just one of the wolf pens, with three of them in it. I don't know how many pens there were (I didn't count) but there are 16 wolves currently living there.
I got to play with nine of them.


Tomorrow we are heading North up Highway 395. The plan is to get to Lee Vining which is the town folks stay in when they go to Bodie and Mono Lake.

If we get there early enough, we may try to check out the Tufa at Mono Lake.
I hear that even a full day at Bodie is sometimes not enough.

Today we were at Mono Lake and saw the Tufa.



Then we went up the road, and saw Bodie.

None. I am home. I have to take a photo of the Camel sitting on the Adirondack chair on my front porch.

Once I got home we had a power outage that crashed my computer.
Now I have to rebuild it.

I'm currently using my old desktop. A computer that my wife had asked me "When are you going to get rid of that thing?"
To which I replied "Never."
It's a good thing I didn't get rid of it. I'm using it right now.

Well, I'm back up and running. That was fun. NOT!
