Wintry Owens Valley


In the middle of my visit to Death Valley last week, I made a side trip through California’s Owens Valley.  The snow level was much lower than in previous years as California has been hit with numerous storms this winter. Unfortunately, low clouds obscured the highest peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
