It's been awhile...

Here are some pictures of Buddy's first snowfall with us. We waited up until the predicted snow started to come down and then played in the backyard. As expected, he loves the snow and cooler temperatures. By the next afternoon the snow had melted in town, so we climbed up a favorite trail in hopes of finding more. It got deeper as we climbed and Buddy was in heaven. I tried to get a picture of him with snow on his nose, but he wouldn't stay still long enough. Too many places to explore.

This week we traded in our morning lows of 5 degrees for a return to fall and 60 degrees. The climb to Mt. Ascension rewarded us with views of still snow capped Elkhorns that my camera just doesn't capture. Time to get a new one I'm thinking.

It's odd that I don't dread winter. I'm not a fan of darkness, but I am looking forward to snow.
Congratulations to Lois for her marathon finish (and awesome time) and Happy Birthday to my niece and Melissa today!

Oh, that single track trail in the snow - BEAUTIFUL! I think Boomer would love the heck out of that. ;)

You guys got snow already? WOW! Nice pics. My dog Merlin LOVES the snow, he even goes swimming when it's freezing!

The Saucony's are awesome. They fit super well, as I have a narrow foot. The sole is not so great as for example the Northface Chinscraper's; doesn't have that super grip. But I love running in them!

Too bad Merlin, Boomer and Buddy can't get together and play. He would love that! Danni - got your ski gear ready?
