Snow in June

Yesterday I had to drive up California State highway 88 doing another series of weather station surveys. I ran into a snowstorm between 6500 and 8000 feet. Big flakes, with accumulation. The temp outside was 31 degrees when I snapped this pix above

And when it was all over, a reward on the other side of the mountain. A picture of Silver Lake near the Kit Carson Lodge.

The last time it snowed in June was the year 2000, just as we were going into another solar peak.
