There are many amazing sights to behold up in the San Bernardino Mountains. The San Bernardino National Forest is eighty miles east of Los Angeles, and motorists can plan a trip to this vicinity using Google Maps. When you come up to the San Bernardino Mountains you might want to plan out your accommodations in advance using the Internet, which will give you ideas about where to stay. If you live in Southern California, you could always just drive up for the day to enjoy the scenery, and to get away from the hubbub of the valley. Life in the San Bernardino Mountains is a bit slower, and you will definitely see birds, coyotes, and other wildlife during a trip up here. I will recommend that you will not want to see a bear if you are out in the forest by yourself, which I can tell you from experience is quite scary indeed. Taking pictures of nature is quite inspiring and refreshing, so I will be sharing a few more of mine in this travel photo essay.

I love the shapes of the bare branches when there is snow piling up. The frozen stuff makes the trees look otherworldly.
Gazing at a frozen tree can be more delightful than a frozen icy treat in July.

It is spectacular to walk around in snow boots and take pictures of the white laden trees, but I can tell you Annie cat does not agree. She decided to stay inside for the duration of the snowstorm.

Tree Branches Laden With Snow
Can you imagine what it would be like to be a tree laden with snow after a storm? I used to imagine what that would be like as a child after seeing the branches of various trees weighed down with snow.
