Another ski & hike day
Sunday was another stormy day. At first light I climbed up the mountain and batted around in a whiteout. The snow was pretty good, but every once in a while you'd hit an unexpected drift. I took a few photos of Philip enjoying that 'free falling' feeling you get skiing in a whiteout. At times it was snowing pretty hard up there.
Then back at the house the family went for a hike in the woods in the rain. The woods were very green and foggy. A totally different experience.
At Nora's suggestion we explored Russian Ridge a trail we'd never hiked before. Amazing to find such a wild place so close to town. Patrick
