Little Truckee River 2: 2.2015
The Little Truckee River high in the northern Sierra after the sources of Webber Lake (which is often diverted to alfalfa farms in Sierra Valley via the Cold Stream/Sierraville diversion) and Independence Lake via Independence Creek.

Little Truckee River is on its way to Stampede Reservoir from here.

These images were taken in February, 2015, when the area should be covered in snow that would slowly thaw into the meadows and river providing riverflow for months to come.
