Yes, very nice image of the cemetery.
And in the park.
Cerro Castolon, Old Maverick Road, and Sotol Vista (I think).
I need to get back out there.

Interesting factoid: that flat topped mountain in #5 - Marathon Tx - is Santiago Peak, over 6500 feet elevation. Believe it or not, in the early 20th century real estate con artists advertised lots for sale in an exclusive community to be built on top of the peak. They actually sold a number of lots before the law caught up with them.

One more recommendation. If you're visiting Marfa, make sure you take time to check out the Prada Store just up the road near Valentine.

"I'll send you a note by the time we hit Lake Tahoe, in case you have some suggestions."

I thought I'd send this off to U, before U got close. My 1 suggestion is on how to get there;
Go on Hwy 395, the eastern Sierra Nevada's Hwy, which goes thru Lake Tahoe, if you can. It's my favorite road. I call it "God's Country". There is even a US395 flickr group

https://www.flickr.com/groups/i395/. The spectacular part is from Bishop to Carson City. You will go over 8,000ft 3 different times. You will see Mono Lake, 1 of the Countries Great, Unique, lakes, not many folks get the opportunity. You will go past Bodie Ghost Town. The best preserved ghost town, really worth stopping. Bodie is in Dyxums cities forum.
Both Bodie and Mono Lake have their own flickr groups. Most of all you will be going along the spectacular eastern side of the Sierra's

South of Bishop is Mt Whitney, highest peak in the lower 48 and Lone Pine the oldest tree in America
Whatever you do stay off Nevada 95 and US. I 5 (Ca.) unless time is your priority.

I don't want to overwhelm you, the Country will do that. There is always Glacier Point, Yosemite. 1 of Americas truly beautiful visions.

Whatever, enjoy your trip and send us many beautiful pics

Thanks for the advice! We actually tried to visit Mono Lake and Bodie because of your post, but unfortunately the weather got in our way. We were planning on driving the Tiogo Pass from Yosemite to to Mono lake. But the pass was still closed last week! Which meant we had to do a detour to get to our final destination for that day: Lake Tahoe.

And while I am here. Why not post some additional pictures! :D

Just caught ups with this marvellous travelogue. Some wonderful images here widely varied in their subject matter and they way you have captured them, and make me want to visit myself some day.
Looking forward to more.

That last mini-set is breathtaking! I wouldn't change a thing about any of the photos. Minor tiny point on presentation though - maybe the rodeo pics could fit in elsewhere, leaving just a set of landscape pics with no distraction.

Agree with previous poster. Landscape shots are cracking. Would lump them all together instead of breaking them up with the rodeo pics

The last set is absolutely stunning!

Let's hope that after your return home you find some time to show us more of these landscapes!

Great work!

Thank you for the nice variety you are presenting! I like the white sand dunes (I now regret that I did not stop when I was nearby three years ago) and 7 and 8 are really great! I also enjoy the lively rodeo shots!

Sorry to hear that, but the pass did open up last thursday. Thats how much snow snow fell this yr, usually its open by April May. I hope you got into Yosemite and saw the falls. I'm sure you would have taken some Ansel Adams like photos.

Your photos are spectacular. I hope you can make a professional calendar out of them. I would buy it.
The eastern Sierra's is a special place. Here's Glacier Point:

Wonderful new images, and again, such wide variety. As you scroll through you get nice surprises, like the those of Yosemite NP, the night sky, and the drinking bison. Hope there's more to come..
