Ringing in Summer...

With a snowy drive to Big Creek. I never would have thought that we would have a fresh fall of snow over the Memorial Day weekend. But I have photographic evidence so it must be true! Look:This was our destination. If you haven't been to the Big Creek General Store, you MUST go. Milan, the proprietess, and her daughter, Regan, put on a fine meal. I really enjoyed the new menu item of Tri Tip on Garlic rolls...Delicious!!!! And of course, the other reason we went:

Milan makes the BEST cobblers and homemade ice cream I've ever tasted. Worth every minute of the drive up to Big Creek.

Then, since we were already there, and have been meaning to do a snow trip, we headed around the lake to Tamarack Ridge. Luckily Kim anticipated snow and packed enough warm weather wear for all of us...including Tyler's fabulous ninja mask.Of course, no trip to the snow would be complete without a snowball fight. It was great fun and then shortly after this picture was taken, Tyler absolutely fell apart. He has this thing about bundling up. He won't. So he wore sweat pants. Yeah, didn't last long. On our way home, we stopped to marvel at this majestic waterfall:

The thing that is so amazing to me is that this is how huge it is before all the snow starts melting...there's still a TON of snow up there to fill this waterfall. Wow.
