Sunrise at South Fork Lake


Sunrise at South Fork Lake

This photo was taken on the east side of the Sierra Nevada in the Cottonwood Lakes region of the John Muir Wilderness, CA, September 2014. Altitude: about 12,000 feet. This day ended with a thunderstorm and heavy rain, but the real storms of the upcoming winter did not leave nearly enough snow pack in the Sierra to feed a thirsty Central Valley, once known as the bread-basket of the world.
