Beautiful area! I only looked at thumbnails cuz I gotta get going. I think the white berries might be snow berries. I'll check these out later! Thanks!

Cool! I live about an hour and 15 minutes from there. A while back I hiked up to the top of Cone Peak with my family and spent the night on the summit. Pretty nasty cold wind but the sunset and sunrise was worth it!

Very nice! Since we have "zero" snow on the ground, I'm heading over to the Central Coast to surf and hike in Ventana. Hmmmm, maybe Sykes? :nod:

Thanks for the comments everyone!
Headed up to Kirkwood area for a snowshoe backpack this weekend which gets snow a bit earlier then other areas, hopefully I won't have to carry my snowshoes! :)

This one is from near the headwaters of the Nacimiento River about a month ago.
