Dreaming of Mountains
This little guy we got in the gift shop at the visitor's center in Idyllwild, California. Several winters in a row our family along with Don, Keiko and the kids would drive up to Idyllwild to play in the snow for a weekend. One year we stayed in town at the Idyllwild Inn, Don wasn't with us because he was in serving in the War in Iraq. The other times we were all together and we rented a house in Pine Cove. Pine Cove is about 5 miles out of town BUT it's 1,000 feet higher in elevation so you know what that means? More snow!
My favorite memory is when we drove into the woods, built a snowman...and then ran it over with the Larry (Don's Jeep). Sounds sick but it was so funny! The head was on the hood for goodness sake!
This past summer while on a visit back home and did a repeat of our Idyllwild weekend with our friends. No snow to play in, but we had a great time anyway.
