Snow on Pinos Mountain  by Orange & Park12.31.14

Snow on Corte Madera Mountain and Corral Canyon in the Cleveland National Forest in San DiegoYosemite? Perhaps. San Diego? No way. Corte Madera Mountain doing its best Half Dome impersonation. 

It doesn't snow often in San Diego. When it does many head north from the 8 into Julian and Mt. Laguna. Crowds and icy roads can be miserable. On the last day of 2014, we decided to head south into the Celveland National Forest and Pinos Mountain. No crowds and epic views.
