Soda Lake Reflections, Carrizo Plain National Monument

After a perfect cloudless day that looked as if it was manufactured to precise specifications in a laboratory, I woke the next day with eager anticipation and headed to the Carrizo Plain. Unfortunately it was overcast, but otherwise a pleasant afternoon out on the remote grassland. The land is still cloaked in wintry looking, muted neutral tones. Only a tinge of green grass and yellow coreopsis flowers are beginning to color the hills, hinting at the promise of spring.

Clouds gathered in late afternoon and a light wind put a texture on the lake that erased the reflection.
