Green Church to Lee Vining

Felt a strong desire for a long road ride in the high(er) country. Mary dropped me off at the Green Church (junction of 395 & Benton Crossing Rd) and I rode from there to Lee Vining via Highway 120.

Early in the ride. Long Valley and the Glass Mountains

Looking back to the Sierra

Heading up to Wildrose Summit. Empty roads & fine scenery.

After a tough climb into a headwind I crested Sagehen Summit

Most of these small plants are Lupine. Their fragrance was dreamy.

The final climb of the day.

Road Bliss!
