Gold Creek

Gold Creek (I90 exit 54) is around 2700ft, and so undergoes many freeze/thaw cycles as the freezing level creeps up and down at Snoqualmie Pass.  Here the ground temperature was a bit below freezing, and nice for snowshoeing.  The previous days must have been quite warm, as all the snow was shed from the trees in the dark band up to perhaps 3500ft or so.

Point Lobos, Carmel

Point Lobos State Natural Reserve is the first headland south of Carmel-by-the-Sea, and is gorgeous in the right weather.  There were seals down on the rocks, and dramatically changing light as the sun came in and out of the clouds.
