2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: Desert Snow
February 21, 2011
Yes, it snows in the high deserts of Southern California. Saturday night storms brought several inches of fresh powder to the local mountain ski areas and about an inch or two to the off-road desert area near Bell Mountain.
Bell Mountain is only an hour north of my house, so the melt was well underway when I arrived in the 2010 Ford Raptor at midmorning. A lot of this is open desert, but since I was alone with no one to take action shots you'll simply have to imagine how much air I did or didn't get. Let's just say the Raptor's long travel suspension took it all in stride.
A couple of hours of sunshine later the white stuff was all gone.
