A brief break in the recent rainy weather had me running around town, looking for views of snow on local mountains surrounding Highland, resulting in photos I like to think of as “postcard” pictures, the kind you see on postcard racks in gift shops and drug stores, or what the local chamber of commerce might […]
I woke up earlier than usual this morning, courtesy my cat. I got to enjoy hearing the expected rainstorm as it started. There’s rain in the forecast for much of the next week. I expect we’ll get scenes like the above, captured some years ago, during a morning snowstorm in the local mountains, a short […]
I took a short drive this afternoon to see what San Bernardino Peak and Mt. San Gorgonio looked like covered in snow following the recent storm from various locations around town. I made photos of a new housing development with the snow-covered peaks in the background, and along Base Line at various vantage points. It […]
Going back through more old pictures, I found this one I really enjoyed from 10 years ago. A late May snowstorm surprised everyone, including this carved bear at the entrance to a business in Big Bear Lake.

I drove up to Running Springs and Snow Valley yesterday to check on conditions. Returning to the flatlands, I stopped and grabbed this view, showing clouds clinging to the mountainside and Hwy 330 snaking in and out of canyons. The communities of Redlands and Mentone can be seen in the distance.

Yavapai County decorates the courthouse every year for the holidays and makes a big deal out of turning the lights on. See the story […]
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. Recents rains and today’s low temperatures have me hopeful we’ll get a good snow year.
