Looking southwest across an ephemeral lake to the Granite Mountains in northern Washoe County, Nevada. The shallow basin this lake fills is normally completely dry (see the satellite view), but is filled due to the extraordinary water season last winter. Snow is also still present on the Granites; they usually are completely bare this time of year, and the continuing snowmelt is helping maintain the lake via normally dry Granite Creek.

FYI, the satellite view hasn't been working for me on IP for a week or so...

Huh. I just tried it and it worked for me, after a hiccup or two.
