Lake Alpine & SR-4 (Part 1) - Stanislaus National Forest

On December 20th, 2018, I took a trip into the Stanislaus National Forest in California up to Lake Alpine on State Route 4. As you know, Ebbetts Pass and much of State Route 4 through the Sierras is closed during the winter, so I parked at the Lake Alpine Sno-Park and snowshoed out to Lake Alpine. Here are photos from my trip. The photos are split into 2 blog posts.
