Snow Dragon

Will you look at that!!!! I had to pull over and and meet the artist who had just finished up with her snow sculpture!

Courtney Rieches hails from Valley Center. She calls herself an ‘aspiring artist’. I think an ‘inspiring artist’ is more like it! She loves to create and has used sand and other mediums over the years. However, she has found snow is her favorite as she can warm it up with her hands to make it really come together. Courtney looks forward to snow days on the mountain. She heads up to Palomar to leave us a special gift; Smiles for everyone who happens to drive by!

Her latest creation may still be playing in the snow in the morning, waiting to be admired. If you’d like to take a peek, from the Summit, take State Park Road just past the first water towers, about 200 feet farther on the left, you should be able to meet Courtney’s Snow Dragon.

Thank you Courtney, for delivering a big dose of joy to Palomar Mountain!
