A Sierra Rorschach Test

September 20, 2008
May Lake in the High Sierras offers a test of interpretation no unlike Rorschach’s.

Visual Viewpoint: Evening at May Lake

This entry could also be filed as one of my “visual viewpoints” you may have seen in earlier posts.

May Lake in the Sierra Nevada

Two years ago my husband and I took a mule ride in the high Sierras. You can read about it on Support4Change as part of a review I did of Ask Now the Beasts: Our Kinship With Animals Wild and Domestic by Ruth Rudner. After giving her article on “Ace, a Yosemite Horse of Common Sense,” I offered my story of “Bruno, a Yosemite Mule With a Stubborn Streak.”

It was on that trip that one of the last places we stayed was May Lake, where I took this picture. It is particularly special to me because in the water is a reflection of the moon, which I “got” that day. If you haven’t read yet about the contest between my husband and myself, and if you want to add a fun game between you and your partner, see Love Enjoys Friendly Competition.
