Baldy Mountain

We decided to try to catch the last of the snow (before it all melted) in the mountains to the north of LA.  Baldy Mountain is an hour and half or so away from Long Beach so we trotted up there with Sharon our Aussie friend who has been visiting her sister and brother in law who also live in LA and staying with us a fair bit too.  The snow was a bit patchy but that didn't stop us having a crack at sledding...and we discovered a whole new sport called "gravel sledding".

 Fairly picturesque

 It's melting!

 Remnant snowman

 Me and Sharon

 Raquel and Sharon and Sharon's teddy bear 'Blackie' (who has faded to be sort of 'Brownie') staying warm

 Gravel Sledding - step 1 - Get a plastic thinggy
 Gravel Sledding - step 2 - Attach it to your butt
 Gravel Sledding - step 3 - Get up some speed on the snow
 Gravel Sledding - step 4 - Yay gravel !!!! Wheeeeeeeee!!!!!
 Gravel Sledding - step 5 - Try to look like cool...."I totally meant to do that"
 Gravel Sledding - what could be more fun?
Apparently a snowball fight could be more fun, so Sharon started a snowball fight
 Chris responded
 Snowball fight over... it isn't dandruff.

Blackie made a new friend...

Bye bye Baldy!
