Saddlebag lake

Record high snowfall in the Sierra Nevada mountains in 2011, and record low temperature in the Spring made the sceneries in Yosemite national park spectacular. You typically see this much snow in early July not in early September!!

Hi Eric,

Thank you for your votes and comments.
Mt. Conness is 12590ft (3837m) high.
Saddlebag lake is 10060ft (3066m) high, the lower conness lake is about 10500. I am not sure about the elevation of the highest lake. It could be somewhere around 10800ft.

I will finish the album today.

I just saw all of the pictures you added to this album. Very impressive. A few more year like this and you will have glaciers all over the Sierras again, but that probably will not happen, or will it?

Thank you Nader for your votes and comments.
This year was truly an exceptional year. The snowfall was twice the annual average, and it was cold till almost mid June. There is still some snow in Squaw valley from last season. I had never seen anything like this. Hopefully, we will have more years like this but I doubt it.
