Snow In The San Bernardino Mountains
Snow is just a small part of the tranquil beauty that comes to the San Bernardino Mountains in the winter months. On a rare occasion you might be lucky enough to spot a hawk in an oak tree, but on a daily basis you may see many other types of birds, such as robins and stellar jays, scavenging for food. Even though Southern California is synonymous with palm trees and surfers, there are mountains in Southern California that reach between four thousand and eleven thousand feet in elevation, so it does snow in Southern California. This hub is about dispelling the old mythology that SoCal is just about hot beaches and palm trees, as we do have many different micro-climates. The difference between Southern California mountains and somewhere like the Rockies is the day after it snows it might be sixty degrees Fahrenheit with clear cerulean skies. The wide range of terrains and temperatures in Southern California is part of the mesmerizing charm of our region. I might not be able to travel far and wide these days, but I do have the advantage of living in a very beautiful place that is considered an international vacation destination.
Google maps are useful for planning your next trip to the San Bernardino Mountains.
Walking around looking at snowy mountains and trees can be quite relaxing. Yes, shoveling snow is a chore, but is also good exercise.
I am glad I no longer live up in the mountains, but I do enjoy visiting during a snow storm.
So living in the snow may not be my cup of tea, but a day trip to the San Bernardino Mountains to photograph the snow is always quite enjoyable.
