In a Mood

Forget everything I said yesterday about gratitude. Today I'm just crabby, hold the gratitude. Blech.

I'm in the mood to get away, but my go-to-the-snow plans for the weekend have been foiled by ridiculously unseasonable warmth across California. 80+ degrees in Santa Rosa yesterday! And it's supposed to be in the 40s and even 50s in the mountains all weekend. Not so good for the snowsports.

So, instead, I've been looking at pictures from last summer's various travels, dreaming of escape:

Bryce Canyon, from the rim:

Arms wide open in Bryce:

Tenaya Lake, early morning:

Yosemite High Country:

If only I were there today. Anywhere but here. . .

The Yosemite photo made me about cry. We haven't been back since we moved out here. But they only let dogs in the freaking PARKING LOT! What's up with that?

Seriously! I've been dreaming of getting a dog lately (Having the humane society directly across the street from your office will do that to you!) But I spend so much time on the weekends out hiking and camping and so many of the best places just don't allow them. Damn those irresponsible dog owners who ruin it for the rest of us!

I'll trade my weather for yours. tomorrow is going to be 6 degrees and feel like minus 13. good snow sports if you like ice.

Crap! That's freakin' cold! I think I might just decide to hibernate from November through April of every year if I had to deal with that on a daily basis again. :-) (I think I've grown soft in just 2 years in California. It's 40 degrees in the morning sometimes when I leave for work and I'm dressed warmer than I used to dress in Michigan/Chicago/Boston for below 0 weather!)
