Just more pictures…
Of me and my younger daughter, Mollie.
Just a short drive inland from those Southern California white-sand beaches, past the palm trees waving in the warm breeze, you see snow covered mountains looming in the distance.
Goodbye, traffic and smog.
Hello, snowy peaks!
Hello, fresh air.
Hello, magical alpine wilderness.
Hello, spectacular vistas.
Hello, small, rocky island in an icy lake.
Hard to believe that a few short minutes before, we were still down there…
… looking up at those mountains…
And if, on your way, you just happen to drive past some hills covered with an eruption of flowers, well, so much the better, right?
