I remember that from our trip to Auburn. It was the week between Christmas and New Years and we were out in the yard working on vehicles in t-shirts. Then someone suggests we go skiing. We thought they were joking until we got about 30 minutes from the house and were blanketed in a beautiful snowfall. We went to Squaw Valley if I remember correctly and skied until dark then went home and sat by a fire in t-shirts again.
My pleasure Ruth it's just a wonderful photograph. It is such a great place, and it sounds like it's more difficult to find places without people where you are. Here it doesn't take too much and you can be completely on your own. Well except for the bugs in the summertime, we have lots of those.
