Entry One: Backpacking in Blue Lake, CA

This past weekend my boyfriend Dan and I drove up from Orange County to Bishop California, where we camped one night near Lake Sabrina, & hiked up to the back country to stay in the wild realm of the uninhabited eastern sierra mountains.  This area has become a favorite of mine since some of my friends took me there on a trip, last summer, to the wonder lakes.  I don't believe I have ever fealt as much peace and belonging as I have in the back country, in which the only things that surround you are mountians, lakes and wild life.  

Here are some images from our day hike & from our campsite.  I couldn't stop taking photos, as there was so much beauty all the way up to Donkey & Dingleberry Lake.  This is God's country, ladies & gents.
