Snow in Big Sur

Esalen Hot Springs with snow in the mountains

Most years we will get more than a few storms that leave snow in the higher elevations of Big Sur (2,500 feet and up), but only a few times in the last 30 years have we seen snow to sea level. Now to be clear, the snow was not sticking, but very wet flakes were making it to sea level in a few locations. Today's "snow storm" was unusual because it was snowing while the sun was out in many locations! 

From the Sur with love,
