52 in 2012: Week 11 {underneath}

My family just spent the weekend in the mountains, surrounded by snow and enjoying life!  In the 6 months that we’ve lived in Southern California, I must confess that I’ve started getting used to the weather.  But as soon as we got out of L.A. and into the mountains, I was reminded that I truly am a mountain girl at heart.  I guess 3 years living in Montana and 8 years in Colorado will do that to you!

We headed to Mammoth Lakes, CA, and arrived just a few hours before a massive snow storm rolled in.  The next 48 hours brought nearly 3′ of snow and then on the third day, the sun finally emerged.  We headed out on cross country skis through a veritable winter wonderland, under a canopy of evergreens with the sun shining overhead.  The landscape was made even more magical as gusts of wind blew snow off the pine boughs, raining down in a powdery mist.  I can’t think of a more perfect place to be {underneath}.

Sunshine glistens while a cloud of snow blows down from pine trees under a blue sky.

As always, you can follow along with several other talented photographers in the Photo-a-week project for 2012. Here’s here’s the list!
Michelle, Heather, Jenn, Heather. Rhonda, Tracey, Stacey, Andrea, Jessica, Amanda, Sarah, Janet, Lesli, Carla, Lena, Rose, Naomi, Tracy, Heidi, Veronica, Amy, Kristin
