Yesterday we had a scout troop hike planned through the woods in the afternoon. I didn't think the recent rain would end for our walk, and I asked the scouts to dress warm and wear boots to tromp through the mud. They all came very prepared to be in mud and wetness.
As we drove out to Russian Ridge Trailhead, snow fell from the sky and we all felt giddy with excitment. The snow sprinkled down on us in the woods. "Its so magical, Ms. Zoya" the scouts said. Erica and I agreed!
We found a comfy spot in the moss and enjoyed rice krispie treats and hot cocoa to celebrate two scouts' birthday. The snow renewed our winter spirits and I was glad we were out and about in it.
