Winter Road Trip: Day 1

_G5A3351

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._G5A3660 _G5A3690 _G5A3675

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.
