Snow Day

A couple weeks ago my friend Kelsey and I decided to explore the Winter Wonderland that is my backyard. I loved breathing in the crisp cool air. Ok, so this wasn't easy. The hills are steep and it was snowy. But we were out there for three and a half hours, so I guess it wasn't that bad.

We found a little ice rink.

I remembered a pond that my dad and I had visited a year ago, so we decided to try and find it. Instead of sticking to the trails we went through the woods. Don't let this picture deceive you, the trees are small so it wasn't easy.

But it was worth it! Because when we emerged from the trees we found this little hut.

We loved climbing inside and taking pictures. Coolest little house ever.

Eventually we found the pond. While it was either frozen or empty, I felt successful in having found it.

I also loved trying to identify all of the animal tracks we saw. I probably had no idea what I was talking about, but I liked pretending.

Have you gotten out in the snow yet (if there's snow where you live)?

I love seeing animal tracks in the snow! My family all went down to Cedar City & went snowmobiling in the mountains after this last Christmas I love seeing all of the untouched snow! So peaceful!

Gorgeous! I can't wait to kick my cold and get my butt out in the wilderness again. I'm going slightly stir crazy being cooped up in the house. We still have snow on the ground, but we haven't had a fresh snowfall in a couple of weeks. The ski hill is suffering!! And, I'm suffering because I want to go skiing! Hehe.

It looks like you ladies had a great time.

Ok, where in the world do you live? It's so beautiful! We just moved to TN, so I'm hoping for some snow to have adventures in! I'm sure we wouldn't ever get that much! Happy New Year!

Allison said...

This looks like such a fun and snowy adventure! My husband and I went out cross country skiing the other night and it was so fun being out in the snow!!

I wish Cincinnati would get snow like this! Originally they were calling for snow NYE night but um, nothing! Love the pics.

Awesome hut! It should make for some cool future photo shoots, I think.

The Weir House said...

No snow where I live. UGH! WHY! Wow those pics are mighty pretty. And that forest is confusing. I would have gotten lost since I have NO SENSE of direction.

Marlen said...

Wow! Such beautiful pictures. And very different to what I am seeing at the moment- lots of hot, sunny weather that makes me very grateful that I work in air conditioning :)
Trying to get back into blogging so hopefully I will be seeing you around the blogosphere!
