So Quiet…

I've never heard it so quiet here. We live about 0.5 miles from the 405, and you don't realize how much background noise the freeway makes, constantly, 24 hours a day, until it's suddenly gone, and all there is in its place is silence. Complete and utter silence. Extraordinary.

    I thought for sure you’d be experiencing that utter silence on Shasta this weekend!

    I also live near the 405 off Sunset. What a great weekend. No freeway noise, no traffic, clear air. They should do this all the time.

About SierraDescents

When there is snow, SierraDescents is Andy Lewicky's California backcountry skiing and mountaineering website. Without snow, sierradescents becomes an ill-tempered hiking and climbing blog.

Pray for snow.
