I took a few shots as I was on a flight back into SFO last Friday:
North Peak and vicinity at the Sierra Crest, with Mt. Conness lower left and Sky Pilot Col upper right


Falls Ridge area looking down theTuolumne River. If it was high res enough you would probably see a little pink bird somewhere in the picture:

I spent this last Thursday through Saturday Nordic skiing (!!) at Tahoe xc just outside of Tahoe City. There was enough snow from this last storm to groom (!!) a good amount of trails for classic and skate skiing. (My apologies for all the exclamation points, but really, skiing in October?!!--wait, more exclamation points...) Anyway, there was still more snow up around Donner Summit, a beautiful sight, and hopefully prelude to this winter. My point is, I was surprised by the extent of this last storm. Also, breaking trail on skis or snowshoes was just horrible; the snow that fell was still powdery (!!) and would not support skis or shoes. Now, everything was melting and consolidating fast as I left on Saturday. Skiing was pretty much over at Tahoexc, I believe; still, out in the trees on north facing slopes there's a surprising amount of October snow. I'm talking about 6500-7000 feet. Extrapolate from that as you will.

It would be cool if Bill-e-g could take a photo of you in 3D flying over Yosemite. wink


Here's a photo of a flying yellow chicken (but I've never seen a pink one fly):

The pink fowl has been charcoaled by a more powerful, fire-breathing creature.

I'll see what I can do.

Normally I don't allow in-flight peek-chures.

Did this one time though:
