Default On the way to South Bend....

My son Ryan and I got up early on a crazy warm and clear Sunday in February to go have lunch with Mom in South Bend. We had a great trip. Mom was thrilled, and we had some great vistas along the way...... 800 miles in the air, an easy day in the RV.

Somewhere over Western Sconnie after sunrise, some mist in the valleys......

Bob - I applied the B&W filter in Google Photos. It did whatever magic it does!

Default I was going to say

maybe you should don the O2 cannula - hypoxia can do bad things to your color vision.

Seriously, a neat photo. Ansel Adams neat.

Pete, I've always been a big fan of your photos. This one is extraordinary. Had to google "Western Sconnie," though. Never heard that term before. I didn't realize they had hills there!
