Big Bear Snow 5, the fifth picture in this series. Sorry, they are no longer in any numerical order, I simply didn’t have then numbered right. This photo is where I hikes up to in the snow wearing only shorts and a t-shirt, having come up not knowing there would be snow.

Big Bear Snow 3. This set of photos, by the way, are pictures I took on a trip to Big Bear, Ca, a couple years ago. I had been on the mountain the previous day but had run out of time and light to get clear photos of all the objectives, having gotten lost several times…
