After Friday afternoon's storm, I knew our local mountains would have snow, and LOTS of it! And, yup...Saturday morning I awoke to see snow everywhere! I didn't go up to the horses. I will do that today. Instead, hubby and I headed out about 9:30 a.m. the opposite direction, toward Whitewater Canyon, which is at the base of the San Bernardino mountains. The Whitewater River flows into the Coachella Valley aquifer and replenishes our underground water supplies, so snow on those mountains is important to our valley. And, there was a lot of fresh snow yesterday!
I was hoping that the trees at the preserve would still have some color and they didn't disappoint me. What a beautiful place! I'm thinking that once I retire, I'll be spending a LOT of time up there!
