It's been pretty spectacular here this week. A little windy, but the colors in town are awesome and the mountains look beautiful with a little snow still on them. Who's planning on some winter fun here in the Bishop area??

This shot was from a few days ago, and it probably looked about the same this morning as the mountains received some more snow last night!! We woke to blue skies and snowy mountains this morning... hopefully the crazy wind we are having doesn't blow it all away up there!!!
