This made me think of the Native Americans and those folks trying to move into that area back in the 19th century...must have been awful tough negotiating those mountains in the winter time!
That's definitely an abrupt end! =0
So did you ski? ;-)Reminds me of Steven's Pass in April...
So much SNOW! YIKES!
I guess a sign posted "This is as far as you go" is not necessary. Peace
Aha...I think I see it, I think I see it. Yes, there's Cloud 9! And who is that on it?
When I first saw your second picture I thought I don't want to see snow in June. Then I reflected on how miserably hot it has been here, and snow seems quite refreshing.
