Sierra East Side in current Outdoor Photographer

Postby mountaineer » Sat Feb 10, 2007 12:59 am

Outdoor Photographer used this photo and text that I wrote to accompany it in their March issue, just out. It takes up a half page and is part of a larger article on "Favorite Places". Hopefully, the exposure for the Bishop area won't flood the place with people. :)

Thanks Robert...to be honest, I was surprised they chose mine to include in the article. There were far better shots to choose from in my opinion.

congrats M on getting an image in that mag

I did see your pic the other night when I went through it. Of course all climbers know that area well. There will never be a lot of traffic out there just like any of the other Eastern Sierra dirt roads as anything lacking pavement is gauranteed to scare off 90% of ordinary urban visitors.

But, they all have SUV's...don't they ever take them off the paved roads?

Thanks for the kudos everyone...kind of ironic that the image that gets published isn't even close(in my opinion) to being one of my best ones...oh well.

Here is the link to the on-line version:

Hey Mountaineer....

Great photo, wish I was there (guess I'm the only one not familiar enough with the eastside to know what mountain that is....LP Peak?)

Congrats on getting it published.

PS. I read your editorial in the Trib. Never heard of that issue until I read your words. What kind of demented water heads would think of screwing the CP that way? :retard:

Shawn, that picture was taken just off Hwy 168, about 7 miles west of Bishop. It is at the beginning of a road that leads into an area called the Buttermilk Country. The view is almost due west and the peak on the left is Basin Mtn. and on the right is Mt. Tom. The photo was taken in January of '06 just after the huge dump that buried the town of Bishop in about a foot of snow.

The article regarding the possibilty of the Carrizo Plain becoming a United Nations World Heritage Site I think was in the Monday Tribune. What a crock!
