During the first week of October, I got interrupted in my pursuit of a couple Sierra locations due to an extremely strong, early season snow storm that blanketed some areas with as much as two feet of snow. Fortunately, there was enough time and warm weather, much of the snow was able to melt, restoring access to part of the high country locations I still wanted to visit.

This week, a new storm has again blanketed the Sierra with snow. Now, with a couple more days of precipitation in the forecast, it’s doubtful that enough snow will melt before the next series of storms roll through the region. If this happens, it will mean that the High Sierra will have seen the last of us ‘normal’ visitors. Of course, she’ll save her grace and beauty for those hearty enough to venture forth with backpacks, cross-country skis, or snow shoes.

So with that, I tip my hat toward the high peaks, saying, “Thanks for a nice 2011 season!”

    This is a lovely image and an even lovelier sentiment, Gary. Sadly, I made it to the Sierra once this year, due to family obligations and other vacations, but there is something about the Sierra that is magical…especially those precious few last-minute trips; it must be something about knowing you’re saying “goodbye” to a mountain range for a season, while it hibernates again until spring…
