Those are really neat pics, Muse.  I've always wanted to be there in a snowfall, but with a hot shower and nice warm room at the Lodge waiting when I got back from taking pictures!

It appears the cold weather was a distant memory from looking at your picture at the Ernst Tinaja trailhead - short sleeve weather.

 You see,you guys have made a lifelong THING(dont know what else to call it) a goal in my life. In 1979 I was in the Sea of Japan & saw snow at sea. My grandmother,Ruth who was dying of lymphoma at the time,said something about seeing snow at sea. I was baffled at her infatuation about this. Later I became bewildered. I didnt know what to think. She said something before she died about this & I kinda blew it off. But my Dad(her son) had said he always wanted to go to BIG BEND but died before he had the chance. So I took the opportunity in 2003 February to go to the desert to see if I could see snow in the desert. That would mean I had seen snow in the desert & at sea. Now, how many of you have seen that? I am saying,BOTH sea & desert! I am still working on the desert thing but I am 51 & still hoping!!!!! Any hope for the near future for snow in the desert? I will be there with BELLS ON,big time!
