Looking at the cameras on Monument Peak-http://hpwren.ucsd.edu/cameras/MtLaguna.html looks like most of the parks 4,000ft+ peaks got much needed snow from yesterday's storm.




















Would be a fun time to do Granite, Whale or Villager/Rabbit.

I checked out the Toro webcam but the view toward Rockhouse that I really wanted to see looked like the lens got covered with snow.

I saw that too. Based on the other pics and how much Granite got, we would have been covered in it on the crest.

Here's yesterday's satellite photos of Whale, Granite and the Santa Rosas. Looks like a good dusting on all of them.

caltopo.com is where I got them but you need the pro subscription at $50/year to unlock the live satellite imaging. Happy to spend that amount for a super useful site and its free app which I use very frequently.

https://caltopo.com/subscription/update is ready to take your money!

Excellent! Rocko: I was thinking the same thing! Tommy750: Great photos. Thanks for sharing. What is the resolution on Cal topo? Is it high enough to see smallish features? Trails, small boulders, etc. G.Earth has resolution on some of it's images where you could see a football on the ground.

So, caltopo uses relatively low resolution for their live satellite and non-subscription "global imagery" layers. Their standard satellite imagery is GE but with a limit on zoom and no pan/tilt or rewind features. I always map and explore with both programs open. The most helpful layers for me on caltopo are public lands, fire history, historic topos and scanned topos. My current favorite GE imaging is from 10/2016 with the sun low in the sky and lots of nice shadows that make trails, rock circles and V shaped fish traps (a recent project) really pop.
