May Day Snow

When I wrote about Snow showers in my kritterspaw blog (here),  I thought it was our last snow storm of the year.  Phoenix, 2 hours south has already seen 90F days.  Well, in the week since then Phoenix has seen 100F days, the calendar has rolled over to May, and we got another snow storm.  Much to the delight of our visiting San Diego friends, we were treated with a magical day on the rim of light snow, fog, and cool weather conditions.  The weather made for interesting photos and a great day.

We managed to grab an opening in the snow fall to stop for a glorious picnic as we watched the snow melt off the trees like pouring rain.

As the fog rolled in, the weather just got more mysterious, and along with it the photographic opportunities.

While you couldn’t see the rim well, it brought an otherworldly eeriness to our outing.

It truly was a magical day.  So glad we were able to enjoy it, and share it with friends.
