Fresh Fall Colors


These pictures were taken on October 10-12, 2008, at Lee Vining and June Lake Loop, CA during the weekend of the storm that dropped about 4-5 inches of beautiful white delicate snowflakes. Temperature dipped below 18 degrees F. Tioga Pass (elevation about 10,000') was closed and many of the visitors in Yosemite were snowbound.

We just left the area last Wednesday the week of the rock slide. We had snow flurries, Tioga Pass was closed a few days. Beautiful shots.
