" This trip with Sheila to Southern California in spring encompassed somewhat varied weather; from 90 degrees in Yosemite, to snow showers in Bodie then 100 plus degrees in Death Valley. The landscape was perhaps some of the most dramatic, varied, and grandeous we have ever experienced. You can only wonder with awe at those pioneers in the 19th Century who passed through or settled in it. On the technical side, whilst Sheila has now gone over to digital completely, I was still taking colour slides in the majority of cases, but on the other hand two-thirds of the shots in this gallery were taken on my DSLR the new Pentax K20D; I leave to you to worry which is which.
