Snow, Snow, Snow

We went to Rock Creek, which is northeast of Bishop. Our campground, East Fork, is at 9000 feet, and we set up in the snow Thursday night. It snowed again on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. It wasn't until around noon on Monday that we saw the sun for more than 5 minutes. Luckily all this snow kept melting - it just wasn't that cold.

On Saturday, we drove out to the upper Owens River (above Lake Crowley), where Don got some great river fly-fishing in. He caught quite a few rainbows and browns, but didn't keep any.

From where we parked on the Owens, I took this picture of the snow clouds as they moved from west to east (left to right). They didn't come south to where we were, though, so Don was able to stay dry for several hours of fishing.

On Monday, after yet another snowfall, I drove up to Rock Creek Lake since Don had said it looked beautiful with the new snow.

Monday afternoon it was finally warm enough to sit outside and read while Don cooked hot links on the grill.
