First Snow for the High Sierras

First Snow of the Season, originally uploaded by Gamut's Edge.

I took this photo yesterday morning while flying from San Francisco to Washington Dulles. These are the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The view is looking south. Mono Lake is on the left side of the frame. This is the first snow of the season to hit the area. You can see fall colors on some of the lower altitude trees.

The storm that brought this snow was the same cold front that brought the bay area rain I talked about in my previous post.

Check out this highly detailed version. I love the delicate little clouds that are hanging over mono lake.
