Editor’s Note: Photographer and Newbury Park resident, William Hicks, recently took to the road and visited the snowy reaches of the Sierras. He captured the beauty of what will melt in the late spring/early summer to water our thirsty, incredibly beautiful, state. Let’s hitch a ride and go north along the spine of California.
From William Hicks:
The White Mountains East Of Bishop Early in April 2019:
Pretty Spectacular with daytime temperatures in Bishop in the mid-60’s. Compared to the 19 degree’s at Mammoth, it’d rather balmy.
The snow is down to the extreme outskirts of Bishop. The local lakes like Sabrina, are inaccessible due to the heavy snowpack. The route to South Lake has an avalanche warning sign in a section of the road that would take you there, if it were accessible. I would say, we have one of the best years I’ve seen in a long time in our Eastern Sierras.
