In mid July I stayed at the rustic Tioga Pass Resort (TPR), a former mining
resupply stop on the Tioga Road (California Highway 120) dating to 1914,
without telephone, cell phone or internet service. Access to the cabins is
over a small bridge across a creek. I had driven over this bridge toward the
highway at least 5 or 6 times. While driving toward the exit one afternoon I
became intrigued by the light on some Jeffrey pine snags across the highway,
took the turn onto the bridge too short, and came to a sudden halt. 

The pictures at  show the
consequences of my embarrassing inattention and the subsequent recovery of
my vehicle by a very skillful tow truck operator, with help from two
employees of the resort. 

Cs & Cs cheerfully considered. Leica M8, Elmarit 28mm.
