While we were in Gold Country we decided to drive up into the Sierra Nevada Mountains just a bit to see if we could get into some snow. We weren't sure if we'd see any more along the drive or while in OR. We found some, this day and a few days after this and then again on the drive home.
We went to Calaveras Big Trees State Park, which was mostly closed (or not plowed) but we found plenty to do just beyond the parking lot. Check out how high that snowplowed pile is behind Henry. The bathrooms had heaters!
Lucy had fun for a while, but she got chilly toes so she and I went back to the van. Yeah, I know what you're thinking, poor Wendy had to have her 'snow time' cut short. NOPE, she and I do well in cold weather together.
