dmatt / snow showers possible most of this week

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

The clouds across the valley over Crowley Lake just lifted for a bit, and the White Mountains are covered with snow.

I wonder how many people were up there and were using a SPOT device, and pressed the magic button.. maybe, just maybe, there'll be choppers flying later today..

Caltrans district 9 camera posted at the junction of US 395, and SR 203 shows snow on Mammoth Mountian.
Latest report from a friend in Lee Vining is that the Tioga Road is closed west, from the entry station, down to Crane Flat due to rock slides (all that rain last night). They (the folks up at the station) report that the road may be closed for a week.
Bummer for those people who were either over on this side doing an early Oct. hike, or those people who posted that they had plans to hike up out of the Park, or Tuolumne over the next few.
