Take CA-108 west from its intersection with US-395 north of Bridgeport, Ca. Drive past the Marine Corps' Mountain Warfare Training Center and continue climbing up the switchbacks toward the Sonora Pass. This is on the south side of the road very close to the pass.
This was an irresistible scene off of CA-108 just minutes from the Sonora Pass in the heart of the Sierra Nevada mountains. The day started without a cloud in the sky, but by late afternoon, the time of this photo, a front was moving in that would drop snow all over the Sierra Nevada the next day. I took many shots in trying to compose the scene just right. It turned out the first shot was my favorite.
