Last year, Rob, Kevin and the dogs went to play in the snow. I missed out on all the fun because I trapped at work. This year, I was determined to frolic in the snow like the best of them. Although we were feeling very jetlagged, we decided to go up to Snow Crest near Mount Williamson in the Angeles National Forest. We (Kevin, Rob, and I) threw on some cold weather hiking gear, hopped into our friend’s Xterra and were off.
Although we collectively took over 200 pictures, we were only actually in the snow for 1.5 hours. In that time, we only covered about 2 miles. The altitude and the snow really worked against us. The temperature was in the 30 degree range. However with some of the wind gusts, it felt a whole lot colder. It was a short jaunt, but it was a nice change of pace. Now, I’m jonesing to rent some snowshoes and go for a much longer adventure.
Here’s a slideshow of more pictures
