Here are some pictures from last Winter Camp at Sierra Pines. It was a church sponsored event for our 5th and 6th graders. It was a fun time even though I realized that I am truly a tropical person. We stayed in rustic cabins, well, maybe not so rustic, since we had heat, toilets, running hot and cold water, and bunk beds. From our cabins, we walked up this road to get to the lodge for meals and assembly.

I didn't account for elevation and the road's steepness. After a few minutes, I was totally out of breath and woozy. I got the hang of it by the 3rd day.

We had to cross a tiny covered bridge to cross this tiny creek.

I didn't realize how high the snow was until I saw this picture.

And this is what we saw on the way down the mountain, on El Dorado Hills, when the snow turned to rain.
