just because you can, doesn't mean you should

...that is what we learned from California City. Sometimes there is a reason that land is so cheap. You just might not need to build a hotel there...yet.
I LOVE taking the kids with me on field days like this. They love the little road trips too. I always promise them a nice lunch or some other treat. Nate has been going on these work trips with me for so many years. I was telling him that I used to stop at nearby malls and take him to the Thomas the Train store for a new item for his Brio set. This trip, his requested stop was Guitar Center in Palmdale.

A totally unexpected surprise was stopping in Wrightwood to see the snow. Driving through Palmdale, we could see the snow along the freeway. We had to stop. It was fun - very California - to be in the 80 degree desert during the day and the snow a few miles later!
