On the way up to Sierra Nevada

Since the first time some years ago when I saw the white peaks of the Sierra Nevada I have loved to drive up in these beautiful mountains. No matter from which angle you drive up in these mountains there is always some fantastic views.

The road from Alhambra up to Sierra Nevada are all new and very good, and you just have to stop a couple of times since the view is awesome. We went up in to 2700 meter then the road ended and the rest was closed by the military.  

As always it is kind of strange to drive up to a ski resort when its closed - it's like the modern version of visiting a closed gold mine city or a ghost town. I have driven up here a couple of times now but it never stops to amaze me.

On the top of the Sierra Nevada
It is nice to have snow around you when you just have left the beaches or the Alhambra as we just did.

Once you reach the top and you feel the snow between your hands again - you know that there is only one thing to do - it is yet again time for a snow fight. Kaija and her friend were posing for a shot in the snow and Kaija was standing there in her own thoughts wher her friend put a lot of snow on her cheast and under her blouse - it was amazing - I laughed so much because she was really taken by surprice. Afer that we had a good snow fight and a lot of laughs.

We were quite lucky on our way up - because we could feel that there was rain on its way but it didn't come. After we stayed on the top we had much worse weather on our way down - we would not have been able to take any pictures because of the clouds that had moved down to us.
