Starting with our day trip back in February, on Valentine's Day to be exact, when Jacques took me up to Donner's Pass to play in the snow as my present! He knows how much I adore snow and how disappointed I get that there's absolutely none that ever falls where we live, so it was the perfect gift for me. We drove even further up to Reno, Nevada as well, but the snow was really the highlight of the drive for me.
|Starting the day off with a picture of the early morning sun shining from behind the clouds. This was taken in a small city along the Sacramento River, across from the Ryde Hotel.|
|First real view of the snow! Or at least the first time we stopped the car to get out and take photos!|
|Couldn't resist getting a photo with this beautiful background!|
And finally, here we are at a little rest area in Donner's Pass. We were able to play around in the snow here for a bit.

|Even more ominous trees!|
