Still wintery here right now in May!!

I guess it must be the Sierra answer to that surfing movie, "The Endless Summer." And even here in Berkeley, CA on this side we turned on our heater today. Well, we needed to dry out the interior of the house. Pretty pictures, though. Thanks.

We had snow in Mc Cloud last night.

Down here at the very beginning of the PCT we are very wet and cold and wondering how all those PCT hikers in just tennis shoes are doing right now. Some of them look so ill prepared when they finish the first 22 miles and stop here at our Malt Shop for a pizza and hot breakfast before starting up into the Laguna Mts.

No snow but rainy and chilly on the Central Coast . We feel the same....😁

I like cardinal village

Geeeezzz!!! R-2 conditions over Donner Pass today, which is my home territory.

Oh no!❄️☃️

Can't wait to go up in August.....back in the early 1970's, there would be patches of snow on the mountain across from Camp Sabrina around Memorial day!

Well WE are raining, cold with thunder and lightning here in the Sonoma County area.

Great place to stay

Fishing and conditions report from Lake Sabrina Boat Landing: Mother Nature definitely didn’t want us to forget her this week – lots of fun weather. Beautiful sunny days, then rain, slush, snowball snow, lightening, thunder, big flake snow and lots of it and then back to beautiful sunny days. And it looks like we’ve got the same instore for us this coming week. We woke to 14” to 16” of snow on Friday, it was a pretty quiet Friday. We stayed hunkered down by the woodstove that day. Pretty much by Sunday that snow was gone.

The Lake was icing off fairly well prior to last week’s storm. The manmade part of the Lake is totally ice-free, but may have some skim ice in the early morning. We’ve got open water behind the Island in the first natural Lake. There’s open water showing in the back natural Lake over by Little George Inlet, but is still iced-over where the Lake narrows down by Cookie’s Point. With the cooler temps, the run-off has shut down a bit and the Lake is not rising. We’re hoping that will change and we’ll have boats on the Lake by Memorial Weekend – just need 6’.

If you’re fishing, might want to try back behind what is normally the Island – can’t really tell you what’s working cuz haven’t had many fisherpeople out there yet.

Here's the weather report for the next couple of days... we've got some changes in store so plan your days accordingly! Whenever it rains in Bishop we take it as a good opportunity to explore some of the great museums around the area, including the Laws Railroad Museum (outdoor and indoor exhibits), the Owens Valley Paiute-Shoshone Cultural Center, and the Eastern California Museum in Independence. There's also the Bishop Twin Theatre, and loads of dining and shopping in town! ... See MoreSee Less

Another wonderful historic post and series of photos from Tales Along El Camino Sierra - about Lemoyne A. Hazard. Enjoy!Lemoyne Hazard was a dedicated member of his Owens Valley Community. He owned a garage (that evolved into a full fledged car dealership) in Bishop in the first decades of the 1900s. He was also a charter member of the Inyo Good Road Club (the originators of El Camino Sierra). The letterhead on his garage's stationery says "Good Roads...and more of 'em." Lemoyne was also pretty skilled at marketing. In the early days of automobile traffic in the Eastern Sierra, he placed hundreds of mileage signs along El Camino Sierra in the shape of a big Red Fish. The fish became so popular, he developed decals, and had a Big Red Fish erected on his garage. The OWens Valley had their own version of "Burma Shave" but better! See individual photos for more information and please share these historical photos with others if you enjoy them. ... See MoreSee Less
