Yes, they really call it that here in Bishop, California on the fishing season opening day. So on this Fishmas weekend, I decided it was time to head back up to the Sierra, just across the highway from my house.

I zipped up Pine Creek canyon, and took a few snapshots before the usual afternoon clouds came in full stop.

Just another lovely Spring day here in Owens Valley, California. Enjoy the weekend, riders!

This first shot is on the side of the Pine Creek road, up near the end of the road, next to the old mine. The mine is now decommissioned, and has been for a few decades now. If the price of tungsten or vanadium head back up, perhaps they'll reopen the m

This is looking east from the road, back down into Round Valley. You can see the White Mountain range on the horizon. White Mountain peak is over 14,000 feet.

Just a shot of the GTV next to Pine Creek. It was pretty sunny in the valley, but clouds tend to come over the Sierra in the afternoon, making for the dappled sunshine on the creek as you see here.

Me, too - it's always hit or miss when it comes to weather in the Sierra. It's been nice lately, but there's snow again in this week's forecast, so you never know. But, before I know it, it'll be 100-plus degrees for a week solid, so I'll miss the colder weather then!

Cheers.

So do I - I'm always grateful I get to live in the scenic Sierra...
