The clones and I decided that the best way to beat the heat advisory and 105+ degree heat was to climb to 7,000 feet, find some snow and throw it at each other.  The dog hated the idea but she got out-voted and we made her tag along anyway.

Lady was so over it.  Not the adventurous type, I think she hates me now.

My little Captain Americas.  Even the dog liked the snow.  All the fun of a snowball fight without the cold, wet misery of winter.  Very refreshing!

I don't care who is to blame for the hot, dry, early Summer (El Nino, GW Bush, Obama, The Illuminati, The Rothschilds, etc.) we decided to enjoy the heat and contrast it with some refreshing snow.

Great idea, Jeff! I wish I had somewhere that awesome near me. Any snow sounds pretty amazing right now!

Lucky you! Nothing like a little bit of mid-summer fun in the snow.
