If you really want to see this area take some turns on some of the sideroads. It has snowed the night before we took Hwy 16. We turned off on Sourdough Rd and what a delight. The snow had not been disturbed yet except the road to get in. It was spectacular. We did see one little deer that had snow on the tip of her nose and she actually stood still almost in a pose so I could take her picture with the snow covered willows in the background.
