Hollywood Hills Tumbleweed Snowman

Daniel and I decided we wouldn't let the 75 degree L.A. winter deter us from doing some traditional winter activities.  We embraced the challenge of doing something quintessentially chilly amidst the sun and the heat and the parched terrain--building a snowman, albeit a tumbleweed snowman.  Of course we would have to make some major substitutions, but as designers who value breaking rules and doing things out of the box we were confident.

The hardest part was the dust and the sweat hiking up hills in Griffith Park searching for the perfect material. Tumbleweeds  aren't as easily found as we thought.  They seem to prefer rolling across highways and sticking to car grills instead of growing right off a trail in the Hollywood Hills. It took some bushwhacking to harvest the perfect specimens and  a few splinters for Daniel (I told him to wear gloves--men). In the end we were sweatier and a bit dustier than we expected, but triumphant!
