Weather was gorgeous and sunny along the coast today so, since I was having none of that, I headed over to 39 for a climb up to Crystal Lake.
Started out a couple of miles above West Fork. Lots of threatening clouds part way up:
Snow was occasionally falling as low as ~2800ft.
Wet roads the whole way:
Pretty decent flurry at around 3500ft:
Yucca + Snow - always a cool sight:
Getting closer to 5000ft and lots of whiter than usual vegetation:
The turnoff to Crystal Lake - a true winter scene:
