10/8/12, June Lake Junct., CA (Coord. N. 37 deg, 48.681 min; W. 119 deg, 03.179 min) Iím currently at just about the same degree of north latitude as I was when I started this journey. What this means is that I am now on the southern portion of the journey, complete with swaying palm trees and exotic natives. This is in contrast to the northern portion of the trip which was abound with polar bears, drunken Mounties in red wool shirts and floating sea ice! There is never a dull moment in the life of the intrepid explorer.
Most of the morning I spent driving along the western shore of Mono lake. The weather was beautiful and the scenery was fantastic.
