I live in Los Angeles. Every once in a while during the winter, we get this strange phenomenon called “snow.” It’s this frozen water that appears overnight like magic! Considering our winters rarely get below 50F degrees, getting snow in the nearby mountains low enough to hike to is very rare indeed. It snowed over the weekend so Hubby and I took the opportunity to hike to some nearby snow in the Angeles Forest.
Oh my God it's SNOW!!
Snow in the distance. We didn't go quite that high.
Mountain lion tracks or big puppy?
Hubby hiking. He started a snowball fight. I won when I nailed him in his manly bits on accident.

Still going up!
Pretty cloud formation.
A view of the La Crescenta valley. We live on the other side of those mountains.
Pretty yellow flowers.
A turkey vulture - black feathers with a featherless red head.
Cute fuzzy plants.
A fire came through the mountains last year. Here are some charred stumps surrounded by new green growth.
