The first snowfall of winter 2009 hit Mt. Charleston on November 16.
It was an absolutely beautiful site to wake up to.
The weather had been a bit balmy and cold the day before, and the snowfall apparently came in the night.
This is one of my favorite things about Pahrump, i.e., the beautiful scenery from the surrounding mountain ranges.
In another month, it will be absolutely gorgeous.
See the canyon running along the base of the mountain? If you follow that canyon up for a ways, toward the mountain range, and if you’re very lucky (we were), you might just get to see some of the beautiful wild horses that roam the area!
