SR-88 & Carson Pass (Part 1) - Eldorado National Forest

On March 16th and April 13th, I took 2 separate trips to Eldorado National Forest and Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest traveling on State Route 88 and a tiny bit of State Route 89. I took many photos while I was there of the snowy winter scenery and I am here to show you. I hope you enjoy.

This is part 1 of my photos. The photos are shot on March 16th. The photos are from Peddler Hill Scenic Viewpoint, Silver Lake, and my snowshoeing trip near Carson Pass in Eldorado National Forest.

Message from the Photographer: If you have been following me on social media for a while, you'd know that a neurological condition is causing degradation to my vision. This is why I haven't been posting much for a long time now. Working on anything photography related has been very depressing for me as I can no longer do some of the things I'm posting photos of (at least not very easily or safely). I'll try my best to continue posting the photos I have, and the new photos I've taken with what remains of my vision, but it has been a challenge, and I usually require a guide (mom) with me almost on all of these trips to keep me safe (and also for driving).
