Snow Camping

As many of you already know, Deric is a leader for the 14/15 year old young men in our Ward. He plans a lot of the activities that they do every Wednesday night, as well as some other fun trips. He decided, and the boys agreed, that camping in the snow would be a great adventure. That is putting it mildly, they went last Friday night (2/26)... that same night we got a huge rain storm. Rain here in the Valley means SNOW in the mountains. It started snowing for them at about 9pm. At 1am they were woken up as the tent was collapsing from all the snow. They had to shake the snow off of the tent ever 15 min. Finally at about 3am they decided to pack up and head out. It took two hours to haul all of the very snowy equipment back to the van. They all showed up at our house at 6:30 am to make their breakfast burritos! It defiantly was an ADVENTURE!

*The other leader is a professional photographer... I just love these shots that he got!

Wow! It is strange that California can look more like the picture of winter than NH! It is very "springy" here, going to be in the 50's today! Looks like you had an adventure!!!
