Photo Hunt: Closed


It has been 2 weeks since we drove to Lake Tahoe and back in a snowstorm, and already it seems like a long time ago. We've had a whole week of temperatures in the 70's and 80's and it seems impossible to think that so much snow could fall from the heavens. But I only have to look at this photo to remember the treacherous conditions that closed so many roads and highways, and caused so much trouble.

This post and photos were inspired by the Photo Hunt theme of the week: Closed. Feel free to leave links to your own Photo Hunt entries below.

An incredible blanket of snow! No wonder roads were closed and not a sign of life!

Definitely beautiful, but barren, and I agree kinda scary too.

Wow, the kind of wintry scene one doesn't tend to associate with California or Nevada! It brings back memories of a winter hike I went on with friends one Christmas in California some years ago -- which ended up in snowy country! :)

Great shot of the storm. Winter can be so beautiful and dangerous at the same time.
