A Snow Day on Horse Mountain

Late December and early January storms produced wonderful snow in the Coastal Mountains.  In mid January, we drove up a twisting road to Horse Mountain, which sits at about 4,300 feet.  Here, we found heaps and heaps of snow...perfect for a day of snowshoeing!  This was Jasper's first time snowshoeing!  The sky was brilliant blue and the air was clear.  Looking west, we could see to the ocean.  Looking east, we could see to the Trinity Alps (photo above) and beyond to Mt. Shasta and Lassen Peak. 

Our little explorer is all bundled up!
