Wednesday night a few inches of new snow fell at Donner Pass. Thursday morning Linda, Ray, Duke and I went snowshoeing there. We parked at the snow park on the frontage road south of Interstate 80. From there we headed generally southeast to Azalea Lake.
The trees were all covered with fresh snow and as we hiked every so often we would hear a womp as a pile of snow fell off a tree. Some times a little bit of snow would fall and roll down a hill. I Iiked the cinnamon roll effect you can see in this picture.
Azalea Lake was covered with ice and snow. It is through the trees in this picture. Really!
Here is the GPS detail of the trip. If you would like to see all my pictures they are available on Flickr here.
