Tree Scours at Tahoe-Donner Cross Country

Over the last week-end in February 2008, another storm hit the Sierra Nevada with strong winds and lots of snow. While I was snowshoeing at Tahoe Donner Cross-Country near Truckee in the Sierra Nevada, the winds were leaving their marks and trails in many ways: On my glasses, on the trail signs and beside the trails. Tree scours of various size and depth around the tree trunks can be found all over the terrain. Some scours are a couple of feet deep. If you go, don't fall in!
