Poisonberries. Three days after consumption, they suddenly cause panic attacks.

Although not the Sierra, it's pretty neat that the Whites have snow on them.

Hmmmm that sucks. Hope it did not snow much on the crest. When I on my way back yesterday, my plane flew over Sierra, but you could not see any peaks because it all was covered in clouds. I was pissed!

Yeah... you have really been lacking for great views. You should have beaten that pilot!

Well we have that. Any snow will be gone in 1-2 days at most.

Sounds like it received more snow than last winter! I guess I will claim a winter ascent on my next climb.
