Over the Grapevine
Left rather late for us and headed north. Bright sunny day with just a few scattered clouds. Everything was clean. The air, the roads, plants, buildings, everything. It was as though all of California was given a bath by last weeks rains. Drive up the Grapevine was crystal clear and there was snow on most of the mountain tops. Several inches of snow at Gorman. As we came down the northern side and looked north we saw something we had not seen in a very long time – The San Joaquin valley. Crystal clear with unlimited visibility. Vivid blue sky, mountains on both sides and green valley floor. Lots of snow to the east but also some snow on the western mountains. No wind. As I said, a view not seen very often.
Made our way up to Fresno to revisit the Elks lodge there.
