The Road To Tonopah for me was actually the beginning of a road trip to National Parks in Utah. Tonopah, Nevada was a waypoint on the way to join a friend in Las Vegas to start our Utah adventure. Driving just East of Mono Lake on the Mono Lake Basin Road, the sage had turned a beautiful pale yellow, and some of the nearby mountains still have snow, so I stopped to take a few pictures. This very pretty scene is a good example of contrasting colors (yellow and blue) and contrasting values (dark blues and brown against white snow and clouds as well as the pale yellow of the sage flowers. I call it The Road To Tonopah.
