Sweater Weather

OK, more like heavy jacket weather but I’ve been listening to the song “sweater weather” by Neighbourhood a lot lately so I thought it was fitting.  Have you heard that song??  It’s such a jam.  I was up in my old stomping grounds this past weekend and it was one of the coldest but most beautiful weekends up in North Lake Tahoe.  Despite the cold, I was outside all weekend soaking in one of the most beautiful scenery’s in the world.  When I could muster up enough warmth to take my hands out of my mittens, this is what I was surrounded by.

I headed to Squaw Valley for the day which was a stifling -9 degrees in the morning.  However, I was bundled and prepared and no amount of cold weather could have stopped me from enjoying one of my most favorite hobbies.  I got to snowboard with some close friends and explore the mountain.  With blue skies everywhere, it’s hard not to feel so lucky to have such a beautiful place only a 3 hours drive away.

  1. Wow, such a beautiful place. I miss snowmobiling! You sound like a Michigander, tough enough to handle the cold. You choose your friends well… Great photos Brittany!

  2. Wow, sure is breathtaking. Beautiful photos, Brittany! Thanks for sharing. I can’t wait to be around beautiful snow and trees 🙂

  3. Ah yes. Little Brit you named it right……….”one of my favorite places in the world’. When I lived in San Francisco, Lake Tahoe (South Shore) was a twice a year trip…..once in the summer and once in the winter.
    Thanks for bringing back the memories.
