Heck, yes! The winter hiking is fabulous. We get to look up at snow on the mountains, but we can go on lake-level hikes without any snow gear. The sun shines, the temperature is perfect, and everywhere you look is a postcard.
Do I feel guilty enjoying such weather when we really need the moisture? Yes. (But not too much!)
|The trail down to Skunk Harbor makes a perfect winter hike to a beautiful picnic spot.|
And the view ain't too shabby. That's Alpine Meadows on the left and Squaw Valley on the right.
|The rocks at Skunk Harbor Bay are gorgeous. And the water is clear as air.|
At my feet is the most wonderful beach, a luscious curve of soft sand.
If the water were warmer than forty degrees, it would be great swimming!
|A few days later, just as we were getting used to this balmy winter,|
we got 18 inches of fluffy white stuff at our house.
So we strapped on our snow shoes and headed out into the forest.
