I am taking a few days off for family vacation time at one of the most beautiful places on earth, the Eastern High Sierras.
This will be the longest time the blog has been "quiet" since August 2005, shortly after I began blogging. It just so happened that last summer we skipped our usual week in the mountains, so we're doubly looking forward to this year's trip.
We hope to visit the new movie museum in Lone Pine on our way up the 395.
No Internet connections where we'll be staying, camping outside the little town of Bridgeport, California.
Film fans: Bridgeport is the town where Robert Mitchum lives in the noir classic OUT OF THE PAST. The town and cemetery were credited by director George Stevens as his inspiration for the setting of SHANE, although he actually filmed the movie in Wyoming.
Check back in a little over a week and we'll be back to our usual "Miscellaneous Musings"!
