Sunset Views from Shaver Lake, originally uploaded by Donna Waddell-Solis.
The views looking into the Central Valley from Shaver Lake as the sun sat on Saturday evening were spectacular. Sunday morning saw the first of several storms that are predicted to deliver as much as 12 feet of fresh snow to the Sierras before the end of January. Good news for skiers, snowmobilers, and other winter sport enthusiasts.
Sierra Summit Ski Resort is just a little further east from Shaver Lake on Highway 168 at Huntington Lake. Check their website for the latest ski conditions.
