Snow visited the Carmel Valley this weekend. There's been a fairly substantial dusting on the highest peaks for the last few days, but the lower elevations got it for the first time in years. We got up Saturday morning, packed everybody into the Odyssey and headed for the hills to play in the white stuff. The snow line was very dramatic, as you can see in this picture. I'd love to paint this scene, but it looks so unrealistic that even if I painted in perfectly, I don't think the image would be credible.
