Walking to Work in the Snow

Yesterday I got to walk to work in the snow.

I had a nice view of the snow in the morning as I prepared to leave the hotel. The hills in the distance were covered with snow.

The path that I walk to work on was mostly clear as the snow melts off of the warmer surface. But, I knew that some of the way would still be a bit slushy.

I sometimes see snow on my drive to work back home, but it is far away up in the mountains.
