We had our first real snow on the summit this week. A pretty cold storm rolled in and dropped 4-6 inches over the entire summit area. On our first ski of the season we went out to Lyle’s Lookout and got a nice panorama from Twin Peaks Point. You can see Devil’s Peak on the left and Castle Peak on the right.
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.
