We need a new photo for the header at the top of the page, something signalling the change of the seasons to Spring. The photo should be a panorama of approximately the same dimensions as the one above.

Post your choice and let's vote or something! Democracy now, harumph harumph harumph!

Going out on alimb here, but I'd say Hikin Jim's picture was taken in late fall/early winter on Seven Mile Road at the north end of Soda Lake at the Carrizo Plain Natl Monument.  I believe the high point on the right (in the background mtn range) is Mt. Pinos.  

FYI:  Was out at Carrizo yesterday coming back from Pinnacles Natl Monument.  Stopped for an hour and had a picnic lunch on top of Soda Lake Overlook to just enjoy the amazing view and the quietness all around (nobody else there at mid-day on Wednesday).  Yes, the wildflowers are just beginning to bloom, but I'm always more impressed with the expansive view and the quiet.

That's Death Valley.  Just wanted people to be aware of how nice the San Gabs are after the snow melts off.

A little PHP code and you can rotate it like this.

Here's a shot of the Three T's I took last year from just above Bear Flat:



Cool

So far I like HikeUp's second shot - with the lingering snow streak - very spring-y!  Or lilbitmo's "Portrait of Eispiraten und RedBull".  It speaks to me.
