Northern California Part 2: Bear Doodang12.05.2013
Lets talk about how obviously horrible it is to drive in the snow. Okay? Lets just go there for a sec. So Lovey and I went up to Northern California to visit some family as you may recall. (I posted about it here and here.) It was fine and dandy until the day we went hiking. Lovey and I were promised to be taken to a gorgeous spot with a lake and a view. It would be a few miles to hike there and back. No big deal. Right? So off we went in two cars (we were following Justin's dad in a separate car) and I began to notice that the road was getting progressively snowier. "Oh look how cute! There's snow here!" I said innocently... But soon I was terrified because I felt my tires skid and my car slipping and sliding on the road. (Thank goodness Lovey was driving) To make a long story short, we ended up stopping on this hill (pictured below) and decided it'd be foolish to continue in these conditions. Instead of making a U-Turn (because you couldn't due to the amount of ice), Lovey maneuvered the car down the hill...in reverse... I've never been in that kind of situation, so to say I was scared is an understatement... Praise God we got down safely!
