Snow, again

Travis' school has ski week (originating years ago when our school district's attendance went way down in Feb, so the school board decided we'd have a ski week) and we're in the mountains, about six hours north of Orange Co., in the Eastern Sierra. Mammoth is an active volcano and an earthquake fault runs under the town, but we'll not talk about that here. Instead, here are some photos of snow, and us, and Trav's cousins, requested by a few friends.

In the wintertime, in the snow country, citrus fruit was so rare, and if you got one, it was better than ambrosia.

Looks like a lot fun! But I hope you had a warm fireplace to go to after all that cold fun.
