I’ve found a new love – snowshoeing! I was getting depressed about hiking season being over, but snowshoeing is what will get me through the winter… I just need to get outside these days; it helps me so much. When I look at where I was a year ago, I’m amazed at how far I’ve come. Back then, there were days where I just didn’t even have the energy to go outside and get the mail. I feel so much better now :)
To give us a little taste of snowshoeing, Tom and Amy took us on a gorgeous little hike on Saturday.
We walked along Denny Creek to Franklin Falls, an amazing 70-foot waterfall. Our camera was too fogged up to get any good photos of the falls, but I’m hoping Tom got some good shots. I’ll probably get to see them sometime in 2011 when he’ll finally get around to posting them…
Monday was Martin Luther King Day, so JK, Amy and I drove to Paradise to snowshoe on Mt. Rainier. The weather was frickin’ amazing.
It was just one of those absolutely perfect days. I love that we live only two hours from the most beautiful place on earth :)
The first (of manymanymany) layouts from our little adventure:
The lyrics on the photo are from No Ceiling by Eddie Vedder. Not that I’m obsessed with his album or anything.
This layout was for Minnopol at Minneriket – we were supposed to make a layout about our ten least favorite things. I didn’t want to marinate in all the negativity, so I made a silly little page about Bobs instead. Doesn’t he look vicious?
