A Day in the Snow. - The Magic Onions

A Day in the Snow.

Oh, it’s been so cold! The warm t-shirt weather of a few weeks ago has been replaced by woolly jersey weather here in Southern California… just the perfect weather for a trip up into the snowy San Bernardino mountains.

An early start for the hour and a half journey. Ham and cheese toasties in the car for breakfast. And Starbucks. Lots of layers of clothing; undershirts, t-shirts, long sleeved shirts, sweaters, jackets.

Wild excitement to play in the snow.
Gumboots probably not the ideal footwear for snow.

Snowballs and snowmen.



Remnants of Autumn.

Getting wet. Getting cold feet. Complaining.

Sun. Snow.


Feeling free in the open whiteness. Together and free.

Blue skies.

Toboggan ride. Laughing. Shrieking.

Too much snow… a little cry.

But laughing still.

Learning a new camera technique… ttv.

Lunch at the ski slopes. Bad food. Great hot chocolate.

Watching the slopes. Wanting to ski.

Happy trip home.

Aah, snow. And family.

Blessings and magic,
