I wonder what the story behind this homestead is? Taken near Mammoth Lakes on US395, Eastern Sierra Nevada range.

Slight draw back... no obvious evidence of a DIY store on your doorstep.

Beautiful photos! I especially like #2, with the second building showing. I always wonder who lived in places like that, and try to think how difficult life must have been for them. I'm sure they felt blessed, to have land of their own, however. If only those old buildings could talk!

Fantastic images with great clarity and depth, and No:1 is my preference.

If I have to pick a favourite it will #2. As for the houses the smaller one looks ready to move in.

The town of Bishop is only about 3 hours away by horseback

I'll bet the weather was hard on them... very hot in the summer, very cold in the winter. The high desert climate. I've thought a few times while driving by to stop and walk and inspect the places to see what's inside, but I'd probably be disappointed in what I found... graffiti, beer cans, etc Amazing that they've stood here so long like this!
Thanks for your feedback!

Thanks for the feedback hebridean. I think I prefer #1 myself but it's close and I'm not sure, so it's interesting to hear other opinions.

Thanks pentaxpixie. I love this area, still so uncrowded! At least, relatively speaking.

Thanks Bruce! I think they are both move-in ready, as long as you don't need electricity, running water, or heat. Great views and plenty of room for your RV.

Excellent shots!! I'm not familiar with the characteristics of that lens. Was that vingetting post crop or the result of the lens/cpl? Either way, I think adds a nice character to the photo. I'm looking forward to going back out west a rockier climate this summer with hopes to see some sights like this. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks willskywalker! The 17-70 is a great lens, the one I use most often. The vignette was added in Lightroom. Just drive north on 395 from Bishop to Lee Vining, and you'll see these shacks on your left.

awesome, I'll keep that in mind if I make it past the Rockies. I'm from Mississippi, so I haven't decided if I'll be making the southern route to California or the northern route back to Yellowstone. 27 hours to Yellowstone and 28 to Bishop. Given that I will be with my family, going back to Yellowstone is the likely option. I guess that's just the excuse I needed to buy the BigmOS.

Nothing wrong with Yellowstone and the tetons.... Have fun!
