While Lake Almanor offers the perfect escape during the summer months for those wishing to have fun in the sun, those willing to stick it out through the winter months look forward to a touch of fall, bathed in a blanket of bright white snow. The Nov. 8 snowstorm left the perfect amount of snow behind to allow bursts of reds and traces of yellow to shine through the beautiful array of Almanor shrubbery. Photo by Jan Davies
