Ann-Christine challenged us to think about winter. When I first reflected on this topic, I thought UGH – winter already? But then realized, I do have an appreciation for the season – it means cozy flannel sheets and a Christmas tree that twinkles for MONTHS. The snow-capped mountains near my town are pretty spectacular also.
We can get out and hike in t-shirts, even when there is snow on the ground….
We drive to the mountains every now and then for a snowshoe or a ski. There is nothing like a snow-capped mountain to generate gratitude.
The weather in Colorado is a little schizo….it snows all winter, then Spring comes, then it’s back to winter in May. This image was from the last big, heavy, wet snow we had this past Spring. I am pretty sure I cried that day, only because the Vid was in full force and was feeling like a trapped animal. I couldn’t stomach going outside in the bitter cold when my soul was seeking warmth. Sure was pretty though.
Winter is Yogi-bear’s favorite season – he loves to run around in the snow and dig for a tasty morsel of rabbit poop.
We also plan grand adventures to mountain huts or yurts. Many of us don’t ski, so snowshoes are the transportation of choice in the backcountry.
Thanks to AC, I am actually jazzed about winter coming! I’d say, we have a lot to look forward to.
