Picture of the week – Donner Pass pano 10-25-14

This week we spent some time over at Donner Pass hiking around. It reminded me of the little trek we took a couple of years ago out that rock promontory right out in the middle of the pass. It’s a pretty tough bushwhack through the manzanita, but the view is spectacular. Here is the 360 pano from that spot. (Make sure you click on the full screen icon in the upper right area of the pano to view it without the overlays.)

This last week autumn really started kicking in here on the summit. We even had our first storm of the season that left a dusting of snow. Here is what a stormy autumn day at Donner Pass looked like this week.

This week we hiked up to the top of Beacon Hill which is the Soda Springs ski hill in the Donner Summit area. It was just after the first snow of the season. Here is a 360° view of the summit.
