For some of you, snow is a common winter occurance, but for those of us in the low desert (elevation 225 feet!), it is so uncommon that we flock to our local mountains every time there is snowfall. And, that's exactly what I did last weekend~I headed up Highway 74, along Deep Canyon to view the snow! I was fortunate that I left my house early in the morning because the road was pretty much deserted and I could stop and take photos. There were only a few other cars on the road that morning, although I did see some from Idyllwild coming down the road, covered with overnight snow. It was almost a completely different world, covered with the white stuff and I enjoyed seeing my world covered in snow! Nature Notes for February 24, 2011.
