There's snow in them thar hills

Snow in our mountains

Frankly, I'm tired of the rain. And the cold. I'm really really looking forward to spring! But, one redeeming aspect of the rain and cold has been snow in our local mountains.

The snow views have peaked out at me and surprised me when I least expect them. Also, when I don't have a camera, or when I'm driving and can't take a picture. And when I intentionally venture out to get a picture, the clouds are back and the snow is hiding.

Finally, the snow and the opportunity came together a few weeks ago at the dog park at Rio San Gabriel Park. From here, you can see how low the snow is. At the far right, you can see Mt. Baldy (officially Mount San Antonio). At just over 10,000 feet, it is the highest peak in the San Gabriel Mountains, as well as the highest point in Los Angeles County.
