Here’s a rather chilly picture I took of Zao Mountain back in April, when my brother was visiting me. It’s quite amazing how much snow was left at the top of the mountain. Sometimes it was twice the height of our car! Even though it was a hot day, it was super cold at the top. The bad part of the trip however was the near two-hour slog up the mountain in traffic. They really need to do something to fix that problem.
