Looking to take a long drive and get out of the city for a little bit and smell some fresh air?
Looking to spend some QT with your signifiant other?
Need to brush up on your nature photog skills?
Want to find some SNOW in the MOUNTAINS?!?!?!
Surprisingly, these things aren’t as far away as you may think they are. Just pack yourself a lunch, hop in the car, crank some tunes and go for a drive up the 2.
Last weekend, Andy and I were in desperate need of some quality time together so we did all of the above things and drove up the 2 for a long time. We lost cell reception and were left with nothing but gorgeous mountains and our echos. As we continued driving up through the mountains and the temperature dropped 20 degrees we found a foot of snow over everything and a perfect backdrop for a picnic.
This link shows a map of the route and gives a tiny bit more information.
Writing doesn’t seem to do it justice so here are a few pictures (which also don’t do much justice for the real thing).
Flip Flops in Snow (the title of my memoir about living in SoCal? Maybe…)
Is it a bird??
Mountains so pretty you don’t even need to Instagram them!
You can even come back with souvenirs the size of your baby doll! Wha?
