We're going back to January 3, 2011, for this one. Brian Schmith takes a ride through the snow on a trail near Palmdale, California (about an hour from Los Angeles). Note the Joshua tree at left, which had been blackened by a wildfire a few months earlier. Palmdale might only get one snowstorm a year, and the snow is usually gone a day or two later.
