Winter Wonderland in the desert

It seems to happen at least once each winter- a snowstorm that reaches low enough to actually cover the Santa Catalina's in snow. It is a pretty sight to most desert eyes. This was my view as I drove to work a couple days ago. By the afternoon most of the snow was gone.

You think of the desert as a hot place but I know it can get really cold in the winter. I invite you to come see my ferry sunset. - Margy

Hi Dee!

I love the photos. The mountains look magnificent. I heard you had snow. Your dogs probably enjoy the cooler weather...

Thanks for visiting our blog!
