Back to 'Ol Hangtown - Placerville, CA - Part 1

Placerville, CA
The long drive from Arizona to Placerville, CA took us 3 days.  We went from desert to central valley up to the mountains.  We'll be back "home" for 2 months.  Lot's to do!  Mother's Day, College Graduation, Wedding, Memorial Weekend, doctor and dentist appts, Wine Tour, Cousins Wedding, Fathers Day, County Fair, get ready to head back out on the road!  Phew, it flew by!


We took a wrong turn and ended up bypassing the grapevine (not a horrible thing as it had the possibility of snowing) while having lunch with about 50 backpackers attempting the PCT (Pacific Crest Trail which stretches from Mexico to Canada).  We drove around it to the east and ended up on this very wavy road.  It was the funniest thing! 

Also had some strange rays of light coming through the clouds.  Beam me up Scotty!

Photo Challenge - Final Day

About the challenge:

I was invited by Jim of exploRVistas, to take part in a five day black and white photo challenge.

This picture was taken at Lake Umbagog, NH in the fall.

As part of the challenge I want to nominate Dotty Clark of Lockets by Dotty.  Dotty & Doug live in Arizona and have camped all over the state.  Dotty has been doing photography for many years.
The only rules of the challenge are:
1. On five consecutive days, create a post using a recent or past photograph in black and white.
2. Invite another blogging friend each day to join in the challenge.

I hope you enjoy my photos, and hopefully Dotty will accept the challenge!
