It was such an awesome weekend. 50's in the valley and the mountains were so clear and spectacular. We took our newest Stitch 'n Bitch grrl, Karen* and her hubby, to our FAVORITE SPOT so they could see why we love it so much. (Karen dyed the wool and knit her beautiful sweater.)
After breakfast we headed to Brighton and Silver Lake, just for the view, and then back down the canyon to Jordan Pines where we like to take photos. The snow, pines and surrounding peaks are so beautiful in the sunshine, to take advantage of the sun we walked up the road a piece. Karen's sweater was enhanced by the light but, poor Rosarie was blinded by the abundance of pure white snow. With an old camera like mine (maybe the settings need to be changed) we are never sure what we have until the pictures are on the computer. Drat!
This is the best picture of the bunch.
