Summer Snow

Summer is winding down to its final days, and as usual I already have snow and ski season on the brain. We got our first snow in Tahoe this week, and I dug into the archives to find this image of some early snow in the Eastern Sierras. Winter is coming and the mountains are calling!

Cold Enough for a Good Sunset

I expected it to be cold in Banff, but it was bitterly cold! This sunset was enough to convince us to go out onto the ice on Lake Louise to get some pictures, but the orange glow wasn’t enough to warm us up!

Happy New Year’s Eve!

The sun is setting on 2018, and we have lots to look forward to in 2019! Happy NYE!

Officially Fall

Well, that’s it. Fall is here. The weather doesn’t feel like it yet, but these trees in the Eastern Sierra are on full display for the changing of the season.

Lupine in the Spring Thaw

In Iceland you expect to see ice and snow, but it is actually much more green and full of life than you might think. These colorful lupine were here to add some great contrast to the usual landscape of running water and snow.

Last Cornice of Spring

Skiing off a cornice such as this one can be intimidating. Last weekend there was nothing but soft, slushy spring snow everywhere, so skiing over this was more like dropping into a pile of mashed potatoes than skiing over a steep drop.

To Catch a Snowflake

As a kid I remember catching snowflakes on my finger or on my tongue. This wolf wants in on the action as well, and is happy to let the falling snow pile up on his nose.

Study in White

At a height of 10,450 feet, the top of Rendezvous Mountain sees a lot of wind and snow during the winter. Everything is covered in white, making for a very monochrome landscape. Even the sturdy trees have a hard time standing up to this kind of weather and are quickly weighed down by the snow.

A Storm is Coming…

…but the road is clear! Time to get to the mountains!

Dreaming of Snow

It may not feel like winter yet to you, but up to three feet of snow is predicted to fall in the Sierra Nevada over the next few days. That forecast makes me ready to head out in weather like this to enjoy some fresh snow. What are you hoping to do this winter?
