Sierra Fields

Field - Sierra Nevada  2015

Highway 89, Shadow - Sierra Nevada  2015

This section of the Sierra Nevada lacks the granite crags seen to the south. We don't know if these fields were forested at one time or not. Taken on a drive we took north of Truckee on highway 89 to the obscure little resort town of Graeagle. (Pron. Gray Eagle.)

[Update: I've since heard that the fields are somehow connected to past glacier activity. Maybe.]
