I'm 56 and have loved photography since childhood. I enjoy nature the most, but also structures & people. In 2013 I upgraded from a Canon Rebel XSi (450D) to a 60D. I love to get out and shoot when possible - but also enjoy the time editing and organizing. I've also archived thousands of older photos and slides - covering many decades and even in the 1800's.

Yes, I did camp at this lake that night. It was one of the most beautiful places on one of the most beautiful mornings that I have ever had the pleasure to experience. These kind of places help one to appreciate the beauty of our God and His creation.

Awesome photo. I was there in July 2001, but the lighting and colors were nothing like this. Would love to go back there - I live in S. California.

Yes, it is from Japan, not China. Huge difference!

I like your photo of one of my favorite areas along the river. The name of this fall is actually "Lower Falls", not Lower Rainbow Falls. I see now that I had commented 2-1/2 years ago, as well. Oh well.

I like your photo of one of my favorite areas along the river. The name of this spot is actually "Lower Falls", not "Little" Rainbow Falls, as your title states. Just thought you might want to know.

I do not have a face book page but my wife tries to keep a blog at http://schsmile.blogspot.com, and she has a face book page (Danette Schwarz). By your photos it looks like you were in my area of Oregon not too long ago. I live in Medford, just north of the California border along I-5. Since moving to Oregon I have only been back to Palmdale three times, the last was in April of this year. I do not even recognize the place but had fun seeing my old house. With all the development in Palmdale, it is amazing that the field across the street (where we built all the dirt forts) is still undeveloped. Anyway, I hope all is well with you and your family.

It's so tidy and rule, that almost unimaginable. good shot. like and collected. Greetings from China.

Thanks for the compliment. I get to the top by just climbing(zig-zagging)up the left side on the rocks, about 100' or so from the fall. There is a bit of a trail at the base along the left side and if you don't feel comfortable on the rocks, you can stay farther left and go wide. However, Mammoth Mountain has received record snow this season (624" to date) and there may still be a lot of snow back there still in June. They'll be skiing until July 4th. No doubt the rivers, streams and falls will be running strong for the summer. I'd check to make sure the area will open in June when you want to go.

Very nice photo of Mammoth Mountain and the sky & clouds. I have one posted at the same place, but you win! It's all about time of day. Love it!

Very interesting Bob. It'd be great to listen to many of your stories from living there year-round, I'm sure. I never did ask you about the history of the Red's Meadow Bath House. If you care to expound on that, I'd love to know. Dave, at the store, told me a little bit about how it started, and got added to over time, sort of like the cabin you lived in. At the store, I bought a book: "Old Mammoth" by Adele Reed, and am still reading it. On our way home we stopped at all of the lakes before leaving town and then took the road through where Mammoth City was. I've been on that road several times, but never actually stopped and looked around. My wife, Jayne, and I walked back to the slope of Red Mountain and discovered a few remnants, as well as the remains of a building alongside the road across from the marker. We wondered how old that old walking bridge was, realizing it's probably much newer. Too bad there's not much left of that era in Mammoth's history. Thanks again for your time!
