The PD and I drove up late on Thursday in order to get an early start on the slopes. After a long wait at Jack in the Box, we ended up getting one of the last parking spots at Snow Summit. We will have to get up a little earlier next time if we want to avoid the long walk.
But, overall, the weather, snow and crowds were all perfect. In addition, we got off the mountain soon enough to avoid the traffic home.
Exhausted, on the way home from the San Jacinto Backpacking Trip, we took the back way, south from Idyllwild and through Anza and Aguanga, before we headed out east through south Temecula to the 15 and back into San Diego.
While driving through Anza, we started feeling the heavy winds buffeting our car. Suddenly, the day went dim and we were driving through a sand storm with very limited visibility. We slowed to a crawl until we made it out the other side. We passed an auto accident that undoubtedly was caused by the blowing debris. We even saw a tumbleweed the size of a small Christmas Tree roll leisurely across the road in front of us.
