You know how John Denver sang about his Colorado Rocky Mountain high? Mine is the High Sierra high. This is Woods Lake, a small gem located at about 8,200 feet in the Sierra Nevada in California. A 20-minute drive and you're in Nevada, which is suddenly desert. Tall, tall mountains and desert. But on the west side of the Sierra, it is total lushness.
This is an annual trip for us. A week here totally renews me.
