Ending the day with a few colorful sunrise shots from Slinkard Wilderness Study Area in California – taken by BLMer Bob Wick this morning. The view – from a 9,000 foot peak just south of Monitor Pass – looks towards Topaz Lake, Nevada. A different perspective of Nevada for our #mypubliclandsroadtrip.

Although the winter had record low precipitation levels in the Sierra, moisture in late spring and summer has resulted in a good wildflower bloom. A note from Bob: I not adjust the color saturation on this; it was just one of those “saturated” mornings!
