Winter Road Trip: Day 1
November 27, 2013 Leave a comment
My friend and I spent our Monday and Tuesday along highway CA-4, also known as Ebbetts Pass. Ebbetts Pass is a very beautiful scenic road through the Sierra Nevada. Ebbetts Pass peak is at around 8,700+ ft! However, because of how cold it was, the rest of Ebbett’s Pass past Lake Alpine (7,000 ft+) was closed. We decided to camp at Big Trees State Park (4,700+ ft). After we set up camp, we headed east towards Lake Alpine for an adventure.
The sun had started to set really early (around 4-5pm) and quickly, too. The temperature dropped rapidly too, so we made our way back to camp to get some nice warm dinner started.
Though the daytime was short, it was well worth it. It was a race against time to capture photos of the beautiful scenery, and preparing some food then to getting ready to go to sleep was very satisfying.
