I am always super excited the first time it snows, which around here can be pretty early. My little town of Mount Shasta sits at about 3500′ but the mountain itself stretches all the way to 14,179′, so there’s a lot of variation. Earlier this week it was raining very hard and it was even thickening up, wanting to snow, meaning that it was absolutely dumping up on the mountain itself. After the skies cleared, a beautiful white mountain was exposed! This wasn’t your normal early October dusting either, there was well over a foot at 7500′ (end of the road). I took my pup and went for a little hike in the snow. Capturing some pics along the way. I was hoping to catch the sunset with all it’s alpenglow glory, but clouds were blocking the sun. At any rate I still got some keepers, and some of them just screamed black and white. I’ll probably have more to post soon, I have a lot to go through, including rendering some HDRs.
