Like most roads over the Sierra Nevada, California Route 4
over Ebbets Pass features a long gentle western approach with beautiful
forest but all too infrequent views.
Below: a recent landslide.
|Three lithologies: llight granodiorite, dark metamorphic rocks, and andesite flows capping the summit.|
|Glacial polish on metamorphic rocks.|
|Deep chemical weathering in hollows on the metamorphic rocks.|
|Those castellated ridges in the distance are also visible on the Sonora Pass highway.|
|Left and below: views east of the pass. Below is the view down the valley of the Walker River.|
