Weekend in Idyllwild
Hubby and I rented a large cabin up in Idyllwild this past weekend. We invited our two grown kids (and grandson) to come up with us and spend a long weekend together. They did and we had a good family get-together, with smores, a wood stove, two nights of BBQ and salmon last night. We all rested and read books and poked around the little town. The stores up there aren't great, so we brought our own food and made breakfast in the cabin every morning. Could somebody tell me why coffee is always so much better up in the mountains? It was down below freezing Saturday morning and there was ice on the pine trees. I thought it was snow, but the locals told me "Nope, it's frost!". A cold front did move through the region Friday night and it rained early Saturday morning. I've never seen this before, so I took 10,000 photos of it! Isn't it interesting?
