Yesterday morning, I drove south to LA just as a big storm was covering the Sierra Nevada. There was fresh snow on the high peaks from Mt Tom all the way to Mt Whitney. Somewhere between Independence and Lone Pine, I stopped to take this photo. Snow in September has people very excited.

A dark mountain ridge descends from the right.  Another peak in the distance seems small, but is covered in fresh snow, so you know it is very tall.  Dark-grey clouds fill the sky, except for a strange gap where white clouds and blue sky can be seen.
