It's been very snowy and cold out (around 2-15 °F), and the roads have not been drivable. Being trapped inside all week has definitely not helped my mood.
|There were several feet of snow at Kamiak Butte this weekend.|
Initially, we wanted to go cross country skiing, but that fell through because the university had rented-out all of the skis. Craig thought we had our own set that his parents had passed down to us. We didn't. I had told him not to take them because I didn't want to accumulate clutter.
We decided to go for a long walk at Kamiak Butte, about a fifteen minute drive from where we live. It was wonderful to see tall trees and untouched snow. We walked around the base of the park first, messing around on the play-set and then investigated if there were any cross country tracks for future reference- there were!
Then we hiked to the top of the butte. The view was amazing. It felt like being on top a could.
|The view from the top- an endless amount of snow and clouds. This photo doesn't do it justice.|
|I asked Craig to take this photo. I love when ice crystals collect on plants in the frozen weather.|
