Photographer's Note

Snow can come early in the Sierra Nevadas, as seen here at Convict Lake in October. The Donner Party discovered this also while trying to cross the mountains near Lake Tahoe and became stuck in the snow.

Mt. Laurel within the John Muir Wilderness, exhibits some of the oldest metamorphic rocks in the Sierra Nevada range. It is 3,602 meters above sea level.

In the opening scene from How the West Was Won, James Stewart is paddling his canoe across Convict Lake.
