California is having one of the best winter’s we’ve had in a long time! I love every minute of it. We’ve been getting rain, snow and our random warm and sunny days. Like this weekend is going to be 77 degrees! Crazy. A couple of weekends ago we had some good snow fall in our local mountains and we had to make a trip up there to check it out. Lucky for us, the mountains are only a short hour and a half drive away. We gathered up a group of family and friends and drove up to Big Bear. Everyone else had the same idea and there was a lot of traffic getting up to the mountain but we found a secret spot and had the area all to ourselves. It was perfect! The snow was at least 3 feet of just powder. For someone like me, who grew up in Southern California, seeing snow like this is rare but so beautiful. We made a snowman, sledded down a hill we found, had some snowball fights, made snow angels, and grabbed some lunch at a local restaurant. I’ve posted some pictures of our adventure, hope you enjoy!
