Weather Wonders

We had planned to go to the mountains yesterday for a hike. However, we were woken by wind in the middle of the night and in the morning it was chilly, windy, there were stormy clouds, had even rained! We checked out the weather conditions for the mountains and saw that it was in the 30's and had snowed! Wow! We grabbed some warm clothes, a camera, our dog, and headed up the mountain.

As we neared Idyllild we started to see snow falling. We parked at the ranger station in town, sat in our car, and enjoyed watching it snow. After a while we decided to drive a little higher up on the mountain. Here's a glimpse of what we saw...

We even found some Fall color....

It seems like we rarely see rain here anymore and rarely get to see snow falling. So, the opportunity to see it is a special treat. Salsa (our dog) loved it too. She especially loved catching little snow balls that we threw for her.

We strolled through town and some of the shops as we enjoyed the clean, crisp air. Before we headed home we stopped at the "Good Times Bar and Grill" for lunch. It was very plain but it seemed to be favorite spot for the locals. We found out why. Everything we ordered was sooooo good! We'll definitely go back there again.

My daughter has a four day weekend for Veteran's Day so I'm enjoying some time with her. But, I've managed to knit up a project that is just about finished. I hope to post my new FO tomorrow. :-)

If I didn't know better I'd think you were driving somewhere up here in Canada rather than down there in California! 'Can't wait to the FO tomorrow!
