Snow Day

You may recall, last week I was fantasizing about having a snowy adventure. Well, despite living in Los Angeles, we made it happen. We drove up to nearby Mt. Baldy to go play in the snow for the day.

The crew threw on all their warm gear, loaded up in our cars and drove up the mountain…to snow!

Even though I read the weather before hand, it still seems so unbelievable that there could be snow so close to where we live. It wasn’t until we were nearly at the top of the mountain that things became dusted and then covered in white.

We took the scenic ski lift all the way to the top. I have to admit, it did make me a little nervous.

This was right before Shawn realized I didn’t have a strap on my camera (right after I leaned over the side with it in my hands to take a photo of a squirrel).

At the top, we were above the clouds. They turned into a sea of white.

It was so much fun. It made me want to rent a cabin, snuggle up by a fire at night and build snowman in the day. I want to go sledding.

I’m so happy we were able to make the trip, even though it was brief, as it really made it feel like real winter.
