Winter Comes Early in Northern Nevada.

An early snow storm closed Tioga Pass, and I ended up having to find a different route home from the Nikonians ANPAT-8 in Yosemite National Park. I detoured north to Interstate 80, and crossed the Sierra Nevada at Donner Pass. As I moved east on I-80 I started catching up to the early winter storm. I took this image of Pilot Mountain in northern Nevada as the storm clouds were clearing. I caught up with the storm when I got to Salt Lake City, and spent the night.
