Dawn Patrol in Onion Valley

I got up early from my camp in the northern Alabama Hills and drove up to Onion Valley for a quick ski outing. Click on the pic to see a nice, larger version!

Dawn at the trailhead was breezy and cool.
Last Sunday Steve and I were up where the sun is lighting on the ridge.
University Peak.
This is the objective for the day. I went up the left arm of the "V".
Another nice view of University Peak.
This is at the top of the snow, looking east along the ridge.
The snow was perfect corn. Smooth and velvety. I liked it!
I was back to the car before 10am. The snow was just right at that time. What a great way to start the work day.
