High Sierra Highs: A Photo Essay (Part One)

As they say, where there's smoke, there's fire, and High Sierra 2008 delivered enough hot performances to make everyone happy. The smoke, while it affected some people, was not as bad as many had predicted, and the relatively low temperatures made for a pleasant festival experience. The music, fans, and that unique High Sierra vibe (if you've never been, you need to check it out) made for ear-to-ear smiles all weekend long. Here are a few of my visual highlights.
