(308) darn snow!

Some friends and I have been planning for weeks (WEEKS!) to hike Mt. San Gorgonio today. Though it is a long, strenuous hike, I was excited to do it. We got a little worried during the week when the rain clouds rolled in, but we decided to go ahead with it. We were resigned to the fact that we probably wouldn't be able to finish the hike due to the likelihood of snow, but wanted to hike up as far as we could, until the trail was too hidden.

So, we got up early and made the drive up, only to find out that the snow was at a much lower elevation than anticipated. Although beautiful, we couldn't even make it to the trailhead. We stopped, took a few pictures, then made our way back down. I was bummed! Ah well... we'll try again in the spring.
