Desert Horses

Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay.

Mountain drive and SNOW

I took a drive up to the mountains yesterday because, frankly, I was bored.  There is only so much TV I can watch and by 8:00 a.m., I was itchin' to get outdoors. After 3 days of being home, I'd reached my limit!!!  I took some photos of the roses in the park because I figured they would have water from the rain on them (they did), then looked up at the mountains. I just HAD to see how much snow they got (insert eye roll...)  Yes, I took a run up the mountain...sigh...I'm actually glad that I did because it wore me out!  It had snowed earlier that morning and everything was covered with snow, including houses, fences,, bushes, and pine trees!  :-)

Looks like a beautiful drive. I'm impressed that you're will to take off like that and head to the snow. :)

Wow, that snow really looks neat! To think, it was not that long ago that we were up that way, and it was nice and warm then. Sure enjoyed that.
