Sonora Pass was closed for snow recently.  It's back open again, but it's a good reminder that we are now in that season where serious weather can happen much more often, and quicker, than in the summer. 

Be careful.

But that doesn't mean you shouldn't hike.  This is a glorious time to be in the mountains.  Pick routes that offer easy "escape hatches" in case you need to bail out early, and we usually try to avoid getting our car trapped on the East side of the Sierra...

That long drive down around the southern end of the mountains is not much fun.
