First Snowfall in the High Sierra

First Snowfall in the High Sierra (Small Image Compresses too Dark ... View Larger)

Elephant's Back Peak

Sierra Nevada Mountains

Alpine County, California

 

This shot of Elephant's Back Peak (elev. 9,585 feet) was taken about 8 minutes after sunrise. It was a frigid morning at 15º F, but it all seemed so worth it to witness the soft light of morning catching the alpine peaks with their first dusting of snowfall.
