I took this photo in the eastern Sierras, off Highway 395, at the Owens Gorge Road. I love those mailboxes and every time we travel to the Sierras, we drive by them just to see them!

Snow storm on mountain~~SkyWatch Friday 041709

Hubby and I drove up to our horses yesterday (Wednesday) and noticed the gathering clouds on Santa Rosa Mountain on our way up. It was windy and cold where the horses are and Doc, our vet, was coming out to innoculate them for their yearly shots, so we braved the cold and wind. He commented about the cold, too, and he's a mountain man! In the hour we were there, this storm dropped a dusting of snow on Santa Rosa Mtn! We saw the snow on our way back down the mountain and it was mostly gone today(Friday). It's just one of the features of these mountains, which are over 5,000 feet tall. Snow storms come quickly over the mountains, full of moisture, deposit their snow, and move on! SkyWatch Friday for April 17, 2009.

Lucky for the mountains, huh? All that cloud moisture pretties them up nicely.

I totally agree with Bryan, he says it so much better than I could ever have.

I really like it when the clouds settle on top of the mountains. I call them lazy clouds. Thank goodness for the snow and rain, so we can enjoy a wonderful summer. Thanks for sharing.

Nice...that's what our hills look like in the summer at dusk. But it doesn't get as cold! Great capture...Nice that you and hubby get out and about so much together!

Very pretty. I think those are the same mtns we see from my bro-in-laws house in Hemet? Don't get down there anymore 'cause I'm an outlaw not an in-law anymore.
Have a super weekend!
From snow to 90 in one week- California weather???
