Snow on the mountains

After I left Death Valley National Park on the west side I continued driving west to get to Route 395 in Olancha, which would take me south to Barstow, CA where I would be spending the night.  After being in temperatures well over 100 degrees for several days I thought I’d never see snow again, but I noticed a little bit of lingering snow on some of the mountains to my northwest and according to the AAA map of California, there is a string of 14’ers there – mountains higher than 14,000 feet elevation.  These peaks include Mt Langley (14,026), Mt. Whitney (14,494, the highest point in California) and Mt. Williamson (14,370).
