I’m currently on a three-week vacation from work and I with my birthday coming up, I wanted to do something that I’ve never done before. So earlier this week, I decided to go on my very first solo road trip! I had hesitations about doing this as I’ve never driven this far on my own. But since seeing the fall colors was also something that’s been on my bucket list for a while now, I figured I’d cross two things off at that list at the same time by heading to the Eastern Sierras to the June Lake/Mammoth area. It was a short two-day trip, but it’s definitely one for the books.
My first day of the trip consisted of driving from LA to June Lake. I also chose my film camera as my main method of photography for trip. Unfortunately, the first roll of film that contained my June Lake photos came out blank. While I’m extremely disappointed that that happened, it’s also a risk that you take when you go with this method of photography.
Nonetheless, one roll of film was still successfully developed! After June Lake and getting a bit of rest at my hotel, I headed down to Mono Lake to catch the sunset. Seeing the tufas surround the water made me feel like I was in a different planet.
