Above the Fog

While most of the San Joaquin Valley was sopped in fog today, I drove up the Blue Ridge Road in search of sun. I found it and what a beautiful day it was above the fog!

The Blue Ridge Road is a very narrow, very steep road, like every other road that goes up into the southern Sierra. It is just a few minutes from where I live on the Sequoia National Forest. At the top of the ridge is an old fire lookout and a couple of cell/radio towers. There are also a couple of lucky people who own cabins up there and are blessed with an amazing view every time they spend time up there.

What's especially amazing about the Blue Ridge Road is nobody but locals seem to know about it. Shhhhhhh, can you keep it a secret?

Blue Ridge extends westward from the Great Western Divide and divides the Kaweah River drainage from the Tule River Drainage. There are amazing views that stretch westward to the coast range and eastward to the Great Western Divide. To the north and south are the expansive oak-dotted Sierra foothills.

For all the big views there are also many little treasures to be found on Blue Ridge...

And if you're careful enough you may even spot some wildlife signs... Did a mountain lion pass this way?

Anyway, it was a great day for picture taking and I just wanted to share these with y'all

Nice pictures!

I wonder how many places called "Blue Ridge" there are in the U.S. Whenever I hear that phrase, I always think of the one in the San Gabriel Mountains near Wrightwood.
