MOM – More on Mountains (and men) – THE SIERRA NEVADA’S, KIT CARSON & THE SOUTHERN ROCKIES
“No matter how sophisticated you may be, a large granite mountain cannot be denied – it speaks in silence to the very core of your being.”
A visionary figure in nature photography and wilderness preservation, Ansel Adams is considered an environmental folk hero . . . .

May of 2011 we drove through the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountain Range in California. This is the landscape along highway 88, through Carson pass. It was was named after Kit Carson, the famous 19th century American frontiersman. Kit carved his name on a tree, somewhere along here.
Kit really got around. On a previous road trip, we discovered Carson’s home in Taos, New Mexico. It is now a museum.
