Snow Day In Idyllwild, CA

Snow begins to fall in Idyllwild.

Snow begins to fall in Idyllwild.

There’s nothing like a snow day to make you slow down and enjoy the beauty of winter. There are always a hundred things you should be doing – laundry, grocery shopping, cooking and the like. But somehow a snow day is also a goof-off day. On December 13, I had just such a pause to marvel at nature, weather, and the things that are truly important in life. A roof over my head, a good wood burning stove to keep me warm, winter gloves, boots, and coat, and a strong manzanita walking stick.

I started taking videos of the snow fall from my deck. Take a look on You Tube: Then picked up my walking stick and headed out to crunch some snow. I hope you enjoy your next snow day as much as I did.

If you want to explore Idyllwild with your camera, take a look at my Idyllwild Mountains Workshop.
