I wouldn’t mind being pleasantly surprised by a healthy snowfall this year, it’s about time we started getting […]

In going through some old files, I came across this favorite from some years ago, showing a father and son thoroughly enjoying themselves at Snowdrift Snow Tubing Park a few miles up the hill in the San Bernardino National Forest.

It’s pretty amazing to me that […]
