A view from the desert

On the way home from the grocery store, I saw this:

Do you see it? Look close. Seriously. Really look at it.

Yes. That's what you think it is. Snow. In the "mountains" less than 30 minutes from my driveway.

What's amazing is that all that snow is usually gone by the first sunny day after one of these storms. Gone. The only stuff that hangs out is at the very top.

And to get up to this snow? Uh...there's no road up there to get to this stuff. So we can see it. We can feel how cold it is. We just can't get up to get to it. Unless we know how to rock climb....
