Mike drove up the Whitney Portal Road until he reached his best viewpoint: a wide flat area with some bear-proof dumpsters. He's been there many a time: oh yes. Flakes were still coming down; there were clumps of snow in the sage plants. The Nikon's aspect ratio (that Mike has complained about) was made for this kind of scene.
