Dusk on the Carrizo Plain, May 2011, Color Version

We arrived around 5:30PM on a Friday evening, in time for a beautiful sunset.  Though there were no clouds, the place glowed.  The Carrizo Plain is one of our favorite camping areas.  There are rarely any people, much less campers, and you can take off on any of hundreds of dirt roads and find primitive, secluded campsites.  In fact, we did not see one other vehicle, other than a couple campers in the KCL campground, on Soda Lake Road.  We stayed in the same spot that my buddies Tim and Rob visited with me last year during the height of the flower season.  I posted a couple of songs - they're both great musicians - they played together on my You Tube site, MrMPeeps.  Check it out sometime.
