Winter Along Scenic Highway 395-Tahoe or Bust

By now you all know I have a love affair going with the Eastern Sierras, and seeking out special places along Highway 395, but this trip was the first time since I was a young skier headed for Mammoth Ski Resort, that I've ventured into winter conditions. With very little winter driving experience and the wrong car, I was a little nervous as I headed out. My ultimate goal was to see if I could get some shots of the beautiful rocky shores of Tahoe, but alas, most of the access to the shoreline is closed for winter. Great opportunity though to check it out for the future, and found some other interesting locales and conditions along the way, like hoar fog (frozen fog), icey streams, and an unusual place called Pyramid Lakes. Hope you enjoy the trip too.
