Katie, our Mini-Adventurer, and I drove up to the base of Lookout Mountain (about 6,000' elevation) Saturday to play in the snow. We took Katie's Ford Escape for the first time in the snow and it handled amazingly well. No skill was needed to keep it safely on the road. We came across several other people out having fun in the snow. There was maybe 5-6" of snow by the time we made it to High Prairie (the base of Lookout Mountain). The weather was mostly cloudy with only a calm breeze and right around freezing. It was shaping up to be a beautiful day.
