One of the things I like about the Sierra is that typically it has lots of water in the lakes, rivers, and streams, and really nice weather in the summer without too much snow on the ground. Statistically, I believe, we have the best climate of any mountains in the world, last year not withstanding. Aren't we fortunate (not last year). From 1971 thru 1995 I can't recall a bad year ,like last year or 1996 (I believe). Those years just had too much snow to suite me. There were some high snow years but none too much for me. How about 2003 - not too much snow but it rained all summer. Nevertheless we have the Sierra with it's really great climate.

Wow, and they say the internet is vast. So here I sit caring for my elderly Mom, surfing while Mom watches the Halmark Channel and I come upon this linked post. On day two of their trip they saw a couple of guys skiing Mt Solomons- that was my partner and I on the second to last day of our White Divide/Enchanted Gorge tour! What a trip!!
