Who says San Diego doesn’t get snow?
For the second day of this storm, I headed to Palomar Mountain State Park. When I got to the 5,000 feet elevation I entered a winter wonderland. I pulled into a snowy turn-out and, with my 100-400mm lens, starting looking for interesting scenes. As I walked around fresh snow began to fall and blow. Fog enveloped me and hid almost everything else. Moments later the mist lifted, revealing layers of snow-laden trees on the hillside.
My hope was to explore Doane Valley, but the park was officially closed, so I didn’t make it that far. I was able to park outside the gate and walk in. I walked the road where I found the scenes below.
I continued on the Boucher Hill Trail with about 4-6 inches of fresh snow.
