We stopped in Lone Pine early yesterday morning after staying in Ridgecrest overnight and drove out along our favorite road there, Lubeken Road. It's right next to a trailer park and heads up toward the Sierra and isn't traveled much. In fact, there's a huge cattle ranch there and we sometimes see the cattle either on the road or alongside it. But, yesterday, they were all in a pasture out yonder. And, we had the road all to ourselves! We were surprised to see the meadow there and the roadside FULL of wild sunflowers. I don't know the name of these sunflowers, but we have them down in the desert, too. There were EVERYWHERE!!! Sunday Stills Challenge for September 18, 2011.
