Last week, when our son Poncho was here, he and I went for an afternoon trip to Mono Lake to shoot some photos. We went up Highway 395 by Mammoth and got some shots of The Mountain on the way.
It was a beautiful day so we ended up driving around the back of Mono Lake to Adobe Meadows. We’ve been there a few times to shoot photos of the wild horses and on this day, we were in luck.
We came across a huge herd of them right when we got out there. I have no way of knowing exactly how many we saw, but I’d guess about 200.
When we pulled up, they started running across the horizon directly in front of us. We didn’t trigger the stampede. Maybe they were spooked by something, just wanted to show off, or were looking for some exercise, but they surprised us.
We followed them across the valley for a bit before heading back to Bishop on Highway 6.
It was a great day in the middle of an awesome week.
There’s more on the way so stop back by soon.
