Aerial Photoblog of NV to CA – 6/12/05
June 12th, 2005 – Pics go East to West.
I was lucky enough to get a lift back to the Bay Area last weekend, and got some cool shots of clear day from the East (Lake Tahoe, NV) to the West (Pebble Beach, CA)…pretty much a straight mellow southwest shot from South Lake to Pebble Beach.
I thought the pics showed a good representation of the microclimates/terrain from Tahoe to the Bay. Not to mention the amount of snow still up in the hills from South Lake looking towards the southern Sierras. The only pics I didn’t get were of the ocean, but I threw an old one of Santa Cruz and Pebble Beach from last year…

Chair 10 – "the wall" at Kirkwood….I was getting pretty bounced around at this point, so many of my photos came out blurry.
Chair 6 – "Cornice"……I think this pic is tight…
