Long Beach to Reno

Long Beach to Reno was an amazing drive. California has some of the most diverse landscapes in the world, and that's easy to see on a drive like this. My favorite part was going through the Owens Valley. Toward the west is a view of 14,495' Mt. Whitney, the highest point in the lower 48 states. Toward the east (on the other side of the mountains) is Death Valley, 282' below sea-level and the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere.

We drove to Reno because my brother was in a bowling tournament at the National Bowling Stadium in Reno. That's an interesting place. Imagine a giant bowling alley with stadium seating, even luxury boxes. It's where many of America's biggest bowling events are held.

Very nice scenery shots, brother. Luxury bowling suites? Who knew?

How about some shots from Catalina and Ensenada?

Thanks J Stu! Those are coming soon.. I couldn't post them earlier because I didn't have access to a computer.
