The last field trip I got distracted by water, but on this trip I got distracted by snow.
I hadn’t been to the snow in years.
I was rather gleeful to finally see snow. I wanted to dig my hand into it.
This is Shaver Lake.
From Wikipedia: Shaver Lake is an artificial lake on Stevenson Creek, in the Sierra National Forest of Fresno County, California. At elevation 5,500 ft (1,700 m), several smaller streams also flow into the lake and receives water from the underground tunnels of Southern California Edison’s Big Creekhydroelectric project. The town Shaver Lake is located on its south-west shore.
Here’s my husband saying, “I’m freezing!”
This is me, imagining where my alien compound will be.
You see a bit of Shaver Lake in this photo. The water level is still really low because they were working on the dam.
Lovely view of a snowy hill though. Parents were taking their kids here to slid down the snow.
A better shot of the snowy hill.
I might use this shot for a Christmas card.
Here’s my husband again. He’s pretending his hand is caught in the crack.
Don’t worry, he’s okay.
This is me again with that same boulder behind me.
Hubby takes one last look at the lake before we leave.
Took this photo on the way up to Huntington Lake.
Snow on top of the mountain.
Hubby pulled over so I could take this photo.
Believe it or not–this is a creek.
It’s just buried under snow.
At last we made it to Huntington Lake
I posted this one larger so you can see the ice sheet over the lake.
Amazing isn’t it?
This is the snow covered mountain behind us as we stood looking at the lake.
Dock at Huntington Lake.
Here we turned around and headed back home.
With all the snow and ice we were afraid we’d hit a patch of black ice and slid right off the road.
I like this cabin. I think I’ll have it in one of my Arcon Alien Stories.
This is how high the snow was along the side of the road.
We noticed this mountain on the way back down. This photo was taken from the car. The little droplets are water on our windshield.
I’m not sure if you can see it or not, but there are grooves in the snow from skiers.
I hope you enjoyed my field trip.
The infromation that I gathered from this trip will be in my Arcon alien stories or Exodus Arcon Series, which will be a SF romance series that I hope to launch sometime this year.
