Tonight we are camping in Lassen National Park in the backcountry. The snow was soooooo heavy, we had no grip with our skis and it was hard moving around. We should of went with our snowshoes. We tested out the selk'bags and they were warm! It was 16 degrees overnight.

Today we drove all the way to Eagleville, CA to go soak in a natural hot spring called Squaw Bath in the Surprise Valley. It was so beautiful, and the water was very hot! Wild mint grows around the natural-bottom pool.

This morning there was hail/snow on the drive to school from the thunderstorms in the area. Although hard to see, the hills in the background were a bit white. We even had to slow down because the road was covered in ice/snow! The hills in the background are Sibley Volcanic Regional Park and are part of the old caldera

Skiing at Royal Gorge X-country ski center - it's the largest x-country ski place in North America (supposedly). It was huge, and we skied about 20km total. We took a break at a warming hut to take in the view behind us.
