A Very Merry Christmas

Posted on December 25, 2006. Filed under: Blog--All categories, Unofficial Musings |

I hope you’ve had a very Merry Christmas! Mine was lovely–time with family and time out in the snow.

My husband and I went snow shoeing today to enjoy some of the winter loveliness that graces us in the Sierra Mountains. We took a trail just on the west side of the Donner Summit and across the highway from Boreal ski resort. The day was beautiful, but the winds were exceptionally high. Our intent was to make it to Andesite Peak, but we didn’t go that far. At one point, the wind literally spun me nearly off my feet!

I was standing with my left foot and snow shoe planted in the snow on a path that followed a curve to the right. When I picked up my right foot to move forward a step, the wind caught me and spun me to the left. Had my left snow shoe not had a good grip on the snow, I would have fallen down a small hill to my left. Wow! That was some gust!

We’re looking forward to more snow shoe adventures this week as we enjoy the rest of our holiday. Enjoy yours, and have a safe and lovely New Year!
