Pyramid Lake

Pyramid Lake

My first trip across the U.S. to California was in a 18-wheeler. My team driver and I had a load to Compton, CA that we picked up in Linden, NJ and had to be delivered 4 days later. It was a long but good trip. I finally got to see things, places and people I only dreamed of seeing. Once we arrived in California, as we traveled along I-5 we came to the area where Pyramid Lake is located. That day the air was a little cool but nice. I captured this picture with a little 3.0 megapixel digital camera I purchased 2 weeks prior, from the window of our 2009 Volvo 780. I had no idea the pictures would come out as good as they did. I have several pictures of the lake and surrounding mountains as well as several other cities I will publish later.

  1. Pyramid Lake is up around the Grapevine isn’t it? You have a fantastic photo to share.

    I have a gazillion photos, most not very good, of my travels. I post them for my crafting friends that keep track of my whereabouts. They think this is an exciting job and I’m not going to burst their bubble. As you know, it has good days and not so good days 😉

    • Yeah, in my case a lot more bad days. I’ve been out here over 18 years and I think I’ve had enough. Years ago, driving a truck was something that made me feel good now, it gives me a butt-ache!! I don’t think of it as the best thing in the world, its just a job! I would like to do local work but I need hazmat and doubles/triples on my license. Really?

      • You have me beat by 6 years. Hazmat? For local deliveries? I can understand the doubles and triples with companies like FedEx and UPS. You live in Virginia? I suppose fuel and coal would require Hazmat. I, too, think about local work. Cement trucks are out. I can’t lift 100 pounds overhead if my life depended on it 😉

      • You and me both, lifting 75 lbs is a chore! FedEx requires hazmat endorsement on your license and the ‘T’ endorsement. I’ve been on vacation for 2 weeks, Monday I gotta get back into it!! Ho hum….

  3. Look around, wait for sales, check online to find the
    best deals and do up your collection with the best products.
    Because the human body is composed of minerals, one
    of the best ways to treat it is through minerals as
    well. As my current readers already know and my new readers will soon
    find out, I write about safe cosmetics.
