Now getting around to the remainder of my October run to the Sierras and Bodie. Conway Summit is just north of Mono Lake on US 395, and you see this view on your left going north.

Beautiful p/p Jerry to get that soft look with great colors for sure. At the top of Conway is where I put the jakebrake on and cruise almost down to Bishop, that is a steep grade for big rigs

Extremely nice colors and surreal clouds. Only thing is probably too much softness applied IMO. Other than that it's perfect!
