Mountains, Lakes and Ghost Towns of California

Kevin HotterMy Featured Blogger this week is Kevin Hotter. Kevin and I were blogger babes when we first met, both with few enough followers to count on our fingers, no toes needed.

    I’ve got a blogger best buddy who started her site when I did mine! She ended up as VP for my nonprofit, and we still exchange love messages all the time. What a journey, right?

    Thank you for featuring Kevin here. Great write up and pictures. I have had fond memories of Eastern Sierras. I consider Sierra as one of the best places in California especially route 395. Thanks
