Alfalfa field and snow!

Hubby and I returned home Sunday ... sigh... back to the desert's heat of 80 degrees! What a change! Yesterday it was 79 degrees here in the desert! It was good to see the Sierras covered with snow. They looked so different! And, we really enjoyed our break. We hadn't gone anywhere since our last trip there, in August, so it was a good vacation for both of us. Now, back to family and work! On our way home, outside of Lone Pine, I spied this alfalfa field and the snow-covered Sierras. While the Sierra's alfalfa fields are dormant, those near Brawley, Blythe, and the Imperial Valley are in full swing! I pass many trucks full of alfalfa every morning, on Interstate 10. Somebody has to feed the horses and cows and the farmers in the Coachella Valley have a 365 day growing season.

This is a neat photo, as have been all your photos from the trip. Snow in the background, irrigation wheels in the foreground. Such contrast in so many ways!
