This weekend, a year ago, began with fog moving into our local mountains. I board my horses up there as the desert is just too hot in the summer. And, we enjoy driving up through the mountains to see them. We go from 200 feet above sea level to 4,000 feet, and the contrast is amazing. We drive from the desert floor, through pinyon, past the Ponderosa pines, to the wide valley where we board them. These are some photos from a year ago, and our drive from the desert to the mountains. It snowed last year on this weekend and snow is forecast starting tonight again. Five days of rain is in our forecast, with snow coming, once again, to our local mountains.
