Autumn into Winter, Laguna Mountains

An early winter storm brought snow to San Diego’s higher regions in early November 2011. Shuwen and I went to take a look and let Toni play in the snow the following the day but this early in the year, temperatures were rapidly on the rise again, and the snow didn’t stand much of a chance obviously.

We took a walk from the Meadows Trailhead on Old Highway 80 – its crumbling concrete bed a better surface to walk on than the muddy mess into which the dirt trails turned quickly, as temperatures rose and more and more people came out to see the snow. The combination of fresh white snow and the Black Oaks, many of them still with green leaves just beginning to turn, was quite a pretty sight.

Here are some impressions:
