Although many Schafer paintings have a snow-capped stratovolcano or snow-covered mountain ridge in the background, they are for the most part summer views, if only because it was difficult to reach those locations in winter in nineteenth century California. In the following scenes the foreground is snow-covered, so they can be presumed to be winter settings.
