Lighting up - Childs Meadows, Tehama County, CA, Sept. 1989 (345°)
I had Lassen NP in mind that weekend, however the weather was lousy with early snow and sleet on the road and finally I gave up. Instead of going to Lassen I met a real cowboy in authentic outfit here at Childs Meadows.

Mt. Tehama (Brokeoff Mountain) in the background.

I spent my childhood summers near here. Yes, I had a horse. But not a real slicker and a real stetson hat like that cowhand is wearing.

Such an atmospheric shot with shades of "The Marlboro Man" about it! Might have been interesting though o see it with the truck cropped out though as that would have given it a more timeless quality!

Having said that the juxtaposition of the old and the new does work too! :)
