High Sierra

Everybody is going for "the seasonal thing," so here is my contribution to the genre :)

Reaching into the archives for an older film image that I happen to like. I'm finally surrendering to the notion that it is winter, though here in the Central Coast our idea of winter is an occasional frost. But, head a few miles east to the Sierra and... voila!

Oh A classic! John this is a Christmas Card that I would buy and never, ever give away. It evokes so many feelings, I can't express how much I love this!
