We live in a town (Seward, Alaska) that receives on average about 7 feet of snow a winter – and 18 feet in a single crazy winter a few years ago. So, I gotta admit, it does seem a bit strange that the first meaningful snowfall we have experienced this winter finally happened in Southern California. But, it did.
We spent the weekend visiting family in Wrightwood, California. Wrightwood is a little ski resort town located at a little over 6,000 feet in the mountains outside of Los Angeles. According to the weather service, the area received 17 inches of snow over the weekend making for perfect conditions for photographing my two nephews as they tore it up sledding on the family driveway!
