Winter in the Southern Sierra Nevada
December 2017 — January 2018
Winter in our natural world is full of suprises. Some trees have lost their leaves, others pretend it is still Fall. Elevation plays a part, and Fall lingers at the higher elevations into December.
Plants adjust to the presence or lack of rainfall, and often both flower and seed pod are present. New growth prepares for the new upcoming season.
Wildlife come and go according to migratory instincts. Some, such as the Califoarnia Mule Deer, stay in their home location most of the year.
