The photos on this page are from the Sierra Nevadas in California. Locations include Lake Isabella, Mono Lake, Mammoth Lakes, Tioga Pass, and Donner Pass. The herd of Elk was in a large field alongside Route 395 on the eastern shoulder of the Sierras. The snowscape is from Donner Pass, where we had stopped to warm our hands on our exhaust pipes. It was cold enough that the pipes didn’t burn our hands.
