Find Snow In The San Bernardino Mountains: The Four Seasons In Southern California
Surprisingly many people living in Southern California have stood in the snow, but there is little excuse with several nearby mountain ranges within driving distance. Personally, I hate driving in the snow or having to walk to work in it, and being a lifelong pedestrian I do the latter quite a bit. However, if you do not have anywhere to go looking at the snow can be quite grand, or if someone else is driving it is not all that bad either. If you love to drive in the snow then this will not bother you at all, and you might actually have fun doing it. Pedestrians can take the MARTA bus routes up and down the mountain, or even arrange to travel on a charter bus. Also, if you have friends to drive up and down the mountain, you could always carpool. There is no reason to go all the way up to Mammoth to play in the snow when we have beautiful snow falls right here in the Southern California mountains.
Snow In The San Bernardino Mountains
It snowed after Thanksgiving and this week also. I used this as an opportunity to appreciate the beauty of the snow, and to try to get beyond the chill factor. I have discovered that by wearing layers I am able to get past being cold, and taking a brisk walk even helps. Here are some of the great images of snow in the mountains, and a few fun videos too.
Waking up to a snow filled morning on the mountain is always interesting. Driving in it is not always pleasant as plowing is far from thorough. My philosophy is many accidents could be avoided with more thorough plowing and by salted the icy mountain roads. It is better to stay at home and admire it rather than having to travel out in these conditions.
Driving Down The Mountain
See all the beautiful scenery as we take a cruise down the Rim of the World Highway on a snowy day.
