What a View

Would you believe it if I told you the view of Mt. San Gorgonio this afternoon was stunning? The recent storm dropped a light dusting of snow starting around the 5000 foot level. The gray clouds hung around the base of the mountain shielding parts of it from view while the setting sun lit up the mountaintop in a blaze of light. The air was so clear it didn't seem like it could be real. Where was the haze we are so used to?

I was having trouble paying attention to the road it was so beautiful. I didn't have my camera but any photograph I would have taken would not have come close to capturing what we saw this afternoon. Days like this are rare here so we have to appreciate them when they come.

I took a walk early this morning with my dog, and caught a glimpse of Baldy...wanted to cry. Later I'll be driving into Redlands, with San Gorgonio on one side of the freeway and San Jacinto on the other. Yes, it IS distracting!
