Carson River in Hope Valley CA by kayaksailor Carson River in Hope Valley CA by kayaksailor
(wallpaper sized)

Waves of misty rain with pockets of sunshine made for spectacular views in Hope Valley CA. Winter has been a long time coming here in the Sierra Nevada mountains - usually this time of year, the river is frozen solid with ten feet of snow on top...

LOL! During the peak "Fall Color" days this valley is crawling with photographers (we, here in California, have limited places for changing leaves :giggle:) I went on to the web to see if I could find a similar autumn view :D [link] Have to say, I think this particular view is better in winter!! :love:

Oh it is totally better in the winter! The scenery is so much more dynamic! Lol. The less photographers crawling around, the better! LOL! More shots for you!
