After a unseasonally warm November and December, it got colder in January and the Juras finally got a good snowfall. We even got a light dusting of snow at our house in Geneva. So the next day, the boys and I threw our skis in the car and headed up to Crozet, less than 30 minute drive.
When we got back up to the top of the mountain, we saw a phenomenon that I have only ever seen before a couple of time. The ice crystals in the air create one or more false suns in the sky. The sun is on the left, the bright light on the right is a sundog.
