Snow Hike

Haven't been on much, been too busy hiking in the snow. Today was the first sunny day we've had in at least a month, and it was C-O-L-D! I think the temps in the valleys were about 22 degrees Fahrenheit, and up top it was probably in the teens. Fun though, and Rocket got to hike with a dog! This is his first play time with another dog since last spring, I think. I was curious if he'd show a little less interest, but nope.... It was game-on as usual!

Up top here at the saddle, the snow has all blown off. But when we crossed and went up and down some of the drainages, we were postholing to our knees. I didn't get any pictures of that, because my phone got too cold and shut off. We were dumb and didn't bring our snowshoes, and Rocket has been snoozing away since we got home, heh heh. His lady friend is a lot lighter and more lithe so she didn't sink as much as Rocket did.









They played hide and seek around this tree forever, it was hilarious!

Wow that looks amazing. So jealous. It only gets cold here, but no snow.

This hasn't been our greatest year. But we did get over 8" last Thursday, which was on top of some old snow, and then it started to melt a bit then last night we got another 3-4". This stuff is the really really dry, sparkly snow because it's been down to about 10F at night. I love snow!

Was this the liberty lake area? Looks like Rocket and his friend were having a blast. We've been heading up north to my parents house out past 9 mile. They have close to 2 feet on the ground. It wears the dogs out quick when they have to continuously bound through it, wears me out too. Today the snow was crusty and somehow it opened up a cut that was healing on Zoeys front leg, I really need to carry at least a basic first aid kit, even on a short hike.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again....
One day, I'm gonna show up at your front door with Kira and family

You live in one remarkably beautiful place.

Nice pics of Rocket, too
