Cold April Storm

I scooted across Carson Pass with a cold April storm following me south as I went. It got down to 22°F at 8000' elevation, quite cold for this time of year. Sub-freezing near Lee Vining and Sherwin Summit. A little snow, but mainly very high winds. I got some nice shots with the GFX, or so I hope, taking a little time en route in a few places.

Near Bishop, CA and elsewhere, long trains of semi-trailer trucks sat parked along the road—hundreds—the CHP had set up a roadblock stopping all big rigs due to extreme winds. Owens Lake was a dust nightmare but I got past it to the dirt road up to Cerro Gordo where I write this somewhere in that canyon, which by good fortune sees an AT&T tower with Lte.

Last year, there was virtually no snow in this spot, below, about 8000' elevation. And this is relatively low, where warm March rains melted a lot of the snow and made it denser.
