Winter isn't too far away

During our drive this past weekend up into the high country of the Sierra Nevada's, once we passed a certain elevation, it started feeling a lot more like winter rather than fall.

Our first hint were these beautiful pinecones.
The sap on them looked like snow from a distance.

The further up we drove, winter kept showing more and more.
A leafless tree among the evergreens.

A sprinkling of snow on the high mountain peeks.

Very cold but not yet frozen water at Leavitt Falls.

Break out your jackets, winter isn't far away.
