Sonora Pass, June 11, 2011

Sonora Pass usually remains open until the first heavy snowfall of the winter arrives. Often that occurs sometime in early November, but snow can temporarily close the pass at any time, as it did late on September 26th (2014) for 3 days. 

Editorial comment:  Russ and I were at Clark Fork on September 26th, visiting friends who were camping.  It was cold.  It started to rain.  Lot of rain on our drive back to Mi Wuk. When we arrived home we heard on the news that Sonora Pass had closed.  No surprise!

Traditionally the pass re-opens in mid-May, but once again, even after it opens, late season storms can cause it to close again. See the past opening dates shown below: Historical Conditions.

    Blythe, You rock! Thanks for keeping us low landers informed about what’s going on in God’s country. Of course if I said that here I’d probably get in trouble.

    Doin’ the Happy Dance here at my computer! I’m glad someone saw — and commented — on the new blog. Thanks Paul. And yes, of course this is God’s country. Wherever ‘here’ is—they’ll just have to get over it. 🙂
