North of the town of Independence I take Tinnemaha Road and pull off to get this view of the Sierra, Tundra and Discovery. You can see the cloud formations that the Owens Valley is famous for; both the Sierra and White ranges create wind currents and updrafts that can "sculpt" the clouds into fanciful and dramatic images. BTW, a note for RVers is -- beware sandy road shoulders! My trailer's wheels had a hard time getting traction due to their being in soft sand. I remember thinking "Great, my first day and I'm already in a predicament!" Luckily, I got out without incident.
