During my solo backpacking trip in Cali

Minarets emerging from the clouds – Ediza lake, Ansel Adams Wilderness, High Sierras, West Coast of USA

This is an area on the West Coast of US that I had a chance to visit last October while on a business trip and turned into an incredible solo backpacking trip afterwards. Now that we live on the East coast I keep on dreaming the day when we could go back to Cali. It was sooooooo good to be home in Sierras. I backpacked through Ediza lake area three times before with my hubby but always in summer months when skies looked rather empty and boring. First time coming back here on my own and what a surprise and a present! Not only I was greeted by dramatic clouds and jaw dropping views of Ansel Adams wilderness, but I was also blessed to catch California fall foliage a day before the first winter storm arrived! This one is to all my Californian friends and fellow photogs! Keep on dreaming – sometimes those wishes come true
