First snow of the summer

No, summer doesn't end until tomorrow, but the first snowfall has already landed in the Sierra.  Check out this photo of Yosemite, where Tioga Pass has been closed temporarily because of the snow.

Just a reminder.  This is a lovely season to explore the mountains, but pay attention to the weather reports.  Snow not only gets cold, it also covers up the trail, making navigation more challenging.
