To Squaw Valley and Back

A short trip to Squaw Valley for some fall colors but got a bonus of winter storm while we were sleeping. So we got these once in a lifetime of virgin snows on the fall colors when we woke up. After a couple days of playing in the snow storm, we were back to our home sweet home.

Some displays at the conference Can't go out and play...nice desert does not hurt. After 2 days of Winter storm, view from our room's window Snows piled up on fall leaves Heavy load, taken just minutes before ground crew came and shaked away the snows.
