Watching the storm role in. Snow transforms everything, turning dry dusty ground into a white winter wonderland. Snow allows the almost desert like conditions of the Eastern Sierras to thrive with life, Aspens and Evergreens, Wildflower and Wild Berries. While California certainly does have some beautiful mountains all year long, I think that snow really puts the finishing touches on them and brings them to the level of some of the more lush mountain ranges to the north. Can’t wait till more snow falls here…maybe be out in it, maybe get stuck on the wrong side of a closed pass again as I did last fall during the first snow (that I recall) when I took this photo of my friend shooting near June Lake. What’s your favorite thing about winter?

Enjoy my adventures?

  1. Snow is beautiful in mountainous regions!
    Snow in the prairies? A little less so. ;P
    My favorite thing about winter is the contrast of a cool, blanket of snow against a fiery sunrise. Makes me feel cozy, even if it’s -40° Celsius. 🙂
