Yay!! Thanks so much~
I love the colors of fall too!
It’s a stunning landscape, Cindy.
Yes, the Sierras are simply gorgeous~
Really beautiful views Cindy and I love the tranquility 🙂
We need tranquility~ <3
Such beautiful images and color of it all considering the very recent, terrible fires raging through Calif. that I have been reading about and praying for people there. My thoughts and prayers to you all out there in Calif. Our country and people have been hit hard this year with drought, fires, storms and hurricanes. I appreciate and am thankful for every moment I spend out doors in our beautiful state while thinking of those in theirs who have suffered through these storms. Blessings to you, Cindy.
Yes, we are facing quite on onslaught. Fire season has not ended yet for California. Heat waves are on the way for SoCal. There is a lot of suffering in our country now and I join you in prayer & hope for those who are suffering. Caring for each other in times like this makes the biggest difference, so thank you Joyce for caring~ <3
Your combinations of color and shape are very satisfying
We can thank God for the beauty <3
Wo was!—Amazing scenery—amazing photographs x
Awww, honored! Thank you & cheers too~
The colors of fall are striking against the mountains. Lovely photos.
So pleased you enjoyed & Happy Fall! 🍂
The colors of the water are very inviting. I want to float on the lake for hours -preferably with a good book and a margarita. 🙂
It would be a tad nippy. Just add a wet suit and you would be good to float!
I am a mountain girl in menopause, I take nippy any time, any where. 🙂
Beautiful Cindy, such a treat to see these amazing photographs, regions I would not see otherwise, thank you <3
Thank you more for such kind appreciation~ <3
Merci beaucoup mon ami!
De rien 🙂
Fantastic! I could really live there!
Yes. I think the same thing every time I am there.
Oh, my goodness — “liquid gold” is just so beautiful! I really need to see this part of the country, Cindy.
October is the best time to visit. No crowds, even in Yosemite, and not too cold…..
wahhhhhhhhhh I wanna be with you…..sooo inviting, so calm and serene….
It is, and I wish you were! <3
Well, our fall fell…like a virus. One day it was 104 (we had a crazy extended summer), the next it was 68 with strong cold winds from the north. Everyone got sick. Finally, the leaves are just beginning to turn, so hopefully it will half as pretty as your pics. That means it will be gorgeous!
Beautiful shots from a beautiful Cindy!
Yes, the weather is seriously whacky. We got sick too, which we usually don’t. It snowed on us heavily and then was sunny the next day. I wish the precipitation would cross the Sierras and help poor devastated NoCal.
It’s crazy how much devastation fire in dry areas can wrack up. I feel sad about that. We hear the news daily!
On a more fun note, my 1000 Posts Gala is up, and I thank you largely for your contribution! <3
Spectacular scenery, brilliant colours, an affirmation that we belong to a beautiful world that requires our love and attention. Today, we are having torrential rain in Vancouver after a long, hot, dry summer. I love the seasonal changes, the variations of climate. It is as if we are involved in a huge symphony that brings out the best in all of us. Hugs
“Spectacular scenery, brilliant colours, an affirmation that we belong to a beautiful world that requires our love and attention.”
I couldn’t possibly say it better myself. Thank you Rebecca~
Absolutely gorgeous views and scenery! 😀
Hugs to you Linda and enjoy the fall~ <3
Thank you Alison. I hear it is raining heavily where you are. I wish it would rain in NoCal~
Oh yes, fall/winter has begun here. It will now rain until the end of March (if we’re lucky – if not it will be the end of April or May). I would gladly send some to NoCal if I could 🙁
What a magical place and beautiful photographs Cindy! ☺💖 xxx
Thank you so much! 🍂
So beautiful. Majestic.
I love the Sierras. They are my second home~ 🍂
Lovely photos and words, Cindy!
Thank you Bette & Happy Fall! 🍂

Awesome pics and post from the Sierras by Cindy Knoke.
You are so thoughtful. Thank you & cheers to you! <3
Gosh I so badly want to visit this place! I just want to sit all wrapped up by that lake and stay there for hours! Your pictures are beautiful as always! 🙂
And there are so many lakes to choose from. There are 100 lakes in this region!
These are amazing, Cindy! 🙂
And there are 100 lakes here. You could spend months going to different lakes!
Beautiful peace here 🙂
I am glad. The world needs peace <3
My former home. It’s just breathtaking how clear the water is in the high Sierras.
Yes it is. The more turmoil there is, the more I go to the mountains.
These make you fell in love with Fall!
Oh good! I love fall 🍂
The water is so clear and turquoise! Gorgeous photos, Cindy!
Yes, Sierra water, so completely crystal clear and there are 100 lakes up here!
Wow. These photos are terrific! 🙂
I was just over reading your blog. Your photos are gorgeous too!
Thank you very much. 🙂
These pictures are so calming and majestic!
So glad & makes me happy I posted them! <3
I’d be looking for fossils there! 🙂
I’d love to do that with you and see how you would approach it. There are a lot of fault rifts running through the area, with lots of upheaval of geological layers, lots of lava falls too….
Ahhh, so glad! Thank you~
I fall under a spell ╣[-_-]╠ just looking at these amazing sceneries and then I fell in love with them.
Aww…thank you! Have a wonderful weekend too, my friend.( ◜◒◝ )♡
Stunning photos Cindy! And lovely words with… 😊
Seems the whole worlds weather in turmoil! Well there must be a plan – however uncomfortable or traumatic for us – thoughts go out to all 🙏
Yes, it has been a rough couple of months for many parts of the US. Here’s hoping it ends soon!
Lovely colours and wonderful light!
Thank you veru much!
Awesome landscape and colours and very beautiful indeed, Cindy.
Have a great weekend,

Hi Cindy, nice to be here again reading your blog and thank you for visiting and liking my humble blog. Best regards from Dompu West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia
I am honored you stopped by my friend. Be well & cheers to you!
Lovely scenes for falling into fall. 🙂
That is one type of fall I enjoy! Happy Fall Brad 🍂
What glorious views, Cindy. It takes my breath away. Thank you for sharing them. Hugs.
You make me very happy I posted Teagan. Have a wonderful weekend!
Breathtakingly beautiful scenery.
That is what I always think when I visit your blog!
Haha…now you made me blush and smile – thank you for such sweet words!
These take my breath away, Cindy. I fall into them and lose myself. Hugs to you, my lovely friend ♥
And the Nature Photographer of the Year Award has surely got to go to…..
Oh yes indeed!
Well deserved for all your stunning posts!
Awwww, so incredibly nice of you and most appreciated too! Cheers to you and have a wonderful weekend~
Beautiful landscapes, Cindy. Like you, I hope the fires end soon.
We went through this in 2007. It is so awful.
I can only imagine. Sending my best.
Breathtaking! Be right over! LOL 🙂 x
I so wish you and Sally could beam over! <3
Wonderful pictures as always Cindy.
xxx Massive Hugs xxx
Much appreciated David & have a wonderful weekend!
Can I make a reservation please? And add a kayak to my tab.
Two kayaks. I’ll go with you! <3
Yay! I need a paddling buddy! 🙂
This collection of sunny, blue skies, lakes, evergreens and mountains is majestic and superbly described, Cindy. hugs xo 🌌💫
Hugs to you Robin & Happy Saturday!
Happy every day to you and yours, Cindy. 🍁✨🍂
Visa versa 2UX2 Robin! <3
What gorgeous scenery you’ve captured, Cindy. I’m not a photog, but I like the angles you chose.
Thank you very much! I am very pleased you enjoyed them & cheers to you~
The Eastern Sierras are definately on our return list. – Oscar
Good, Maybe next time we will be there at the same time!
of past adventures 🙂
Love the feeling evoked by your poem!
Some stunning vistas here, Cindy. Would you like to choose one of your lovely photos as a guest submission to my Monday mystery feature on my blog? I post linkbacks to your site and credit you as photographer. I usually post them for two weeks. If you are interested, you can find my email under my profile ( on my gravatar, in the side bar). Much appreciated if you wish to do this.
Well, how thoughtful of you thank you! I could pick a photo and send, or you can pick any of my photos you want that match the theme of your post which might be better. Let me know your preference and many thanks for your kindness!
There isn’t a theme, Cindy. Each week is something new. I would love photos of somewhere in the American contintent, as I haven’t featured many of those. Would that be possible?
How about your pick from these photos in Utah?
I think the fourth one with the water in front of the rocks would be good. Is that a well known spot? I would need a sentence or two about it to post on the week of the ‘solution’ post. Would that be okay?
How about something like (Edit freely and shorten please!) :
This photo was taken on The Potash Road Dinosaur Tracks and Petroglyph cite in Moab Utah. Some of the petroglyphs in Moab are estimated to be from 3500 BC. The road along this river is covered with ancient petroglyphs sending messages to us from people in the past, and dinosaur footprints walking right alongside the road!
Perfect, Thanks Cindy! I will post a pingback to you when it is pubished, in a week or so.
Thanks much & cheers to you my friend!
Wow! Magnificent picw
Thanks much & Happy Sunday!
Awww, so appreciated! Thank you~
You are welcome, Cindy!
It fell very nicely, indeed <3
Very happy you enjoyed & have an awesome Sunday! 🍂
Every photo could be a postcard! Nice
Ahh, so nice of you to say! Cheers to you~ <3
Hi Cindy, I am glad to have found your blog.
I love these pictures.
Well, it is a pleasure to meet and thank you for stopping by!
We drove through the Sierras in mid-September and the leaves were just starting to turn in some areas. Beautiful pictures! Was sorry we couldn’t wait for the full Fall Foliage!
It’s hard to time it isn’t it. The same thing happened to me when I went east to see the leaves change!
You have such a great eye. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you more for the kind appreciation!
I love the eastern Sierra! So happy you enjoyed & cheers to you~ <3
Awww, you are a thoughtful friend <3
Cheers to you capturing the essence of fall. My fav is the second pic, which set the tone (for me).
Thank you! Those autumnal hues are hard to top.
Such amazing pictures, a wonderful world truly! ( where it has not been detroyed)
Yes, the terrible destruction is happening on the western side of the Sierra Nevadas. Awful~
There is nothing like the scent of the first snow on the air, and the hushed waiting quality of the world.
Yes. It is my favorite time of year. Quiet and expectant~
A good time for reflection.
Yes, and hot chocolate~
These are beautiful. The water from high lakes is always so beautifully clear (although I woudn’t recommend swimming it -brrrr) . The trouble is it is so inviting and you’ve made me want to swim in it. 😀
On your mark, get set, GO!
mmm I’ll be polite – after you 🙂
Gorgeous pictures with those blue skies. And, yes, prayers to all those dealing with the terrible fires. It’s heartbreaking.
It is heartbreaking and way too frequent~
This is beautiful, Cindy!! 😀
Most appreciated and Happy Fall!
Simply stunning scenery and photographs 🙂
I should add, “very autumnal”…
Thank you so much! I was just over enjoying your wonderful blog and photos~
Love your landscape photos! <3
Ahhh, thanks so much Amy & cheers to you!
Just beautiful whilst I’m sat in dark, wet Glasgow 😊 like perfect postcards
Let me know when you come to California to sing and I’ll show you around!
It is such a wonderful time of year.
Yes, my favorite~
Thank you Mandy & cheers to you too! <3
So calm and peaceful
We need more of this in our lives <3
