It's almost winter!

Post by bheiser1 » Tue Oct 26, 2010 5:41 pm

Ummm ... according to one of my favorite webcams, there's snow in the high sierra ... and it won't be long before it's even lower. I'm surprised nobody has posted anything here yet about their upcoming winter activities. What's in the works? :)

I'm (maybe for the first time ever) looking forward to snow so I can try my new snowshoes ... hoping to enjoy some treks thru the beautiful backcountry with freshly fallen snow glistening in the sunshine :).

That's a pretty good dusting so early in, JD.

That shot is at Rock Creek Lake, ~9,600'. Most of that snow is gone now (as are the leaves). Still quite a bit of snow up high though.

JD.. Is that you on the ice or in the snow? If so, who is taking the pic?
