Description

The North, Middle and South Sister reflect in Topaz Lake on the Nevada/California border. We received at least 30" of snow in 24 hours in late January, more than anyone could remember in recent decades. That's normally our entire season's worth of snow, and we usually get that a few inches at a time, so it melts away quickly. It took us a few days and a neighbor's tractor to get out, but once we could drive around there were a lot of excellent scenes to be captured!
