Winter Storm – Mount Tom – Bishop, CA
Mount Tom is a massive 13,000+ foot pyramid-shaped mountain rising to the northwest of Bishop, CA. I had spent the night in Bishop on my way to Mammoth, in order to avoid facing possible icy or snowy conditions after dark on the Sherwin grade, and was awe-struck when I stepped outside in the morning when I saw Mt. Tom, topped with snow and girded with storm clouds.
I stopped in at the Eastern Sierra Land Trust office (where you can now see some of my Eastern Sierra Photos!) to say hi before heading up the mountain. I spoke with Kay there about seeing Mt. Tom and wanting to capture a photograph of it in this condition, and she told me where to get the picture that you see here!
