Clean Mountain Air

I've been neglecting this blog a little bit lately as I've focused on getting my revisions of Natalia finished up instead.  I did manage to get a beta version done, and now I've received some good feedback so I'm plugging away at making the final changes.  Luckily I'm in a beautiful place to get some work done, at Mammoth Mountain in California's high sierra.

Perfect summer weather means writing every morning and then hiking or biking in the afternoon.  These pictures I took today hiking up to Emerald Lake.

It's great to get out into the wilderness to clear my mind and just let it wander where it may.  Somehow it makes getting back to the writing so much easier when I can cut out all of the other distractions of life for a while.  And besides, scenery like this is just plain hard to beat!


  1. Hi Kenneth! Great to hear that Natalia is almost done - I can't wait to read it. I've been so very busy over the past few weeks that getting out into the wilderness and clearing my meind sounds like something I really need to do before I can get down to writing. We have been promised some sunshine in Scotland soon - a change from the heavy rain - fingers crossed!

    Take care, Janice x

  2. I'm glad to hear that you've been keeping yourself busy, despite all of the rain! We had a fair bit of that here yesterday, too, but it's clearing now so off for another hike. Good luck with the pending Scottish sunshine! I hope it lasts a while for you.

  3. Lovely scenery to work in.

  4. Thanks Linda, it is a nice place to spend some time!
