Sierra Majesty

The Sierra Nevada mountain range is home to Mammoth Mountain, the ski resort Jennifer and I visited prior to my departure. I caught this view while looking west from the backside of the mountain while on my way down. These are gorgeous mountains and deserving of their every mention in American literature. Famous for the gold rushes of the middle 1800s, Sequoia National Forest, Yosemite and the cannibalism of the Donner Party among a tremendous list of other things, the Sierra Nevadas have earned a very strong reputation for spectacular flora, intense weather and beauty.
