As I mentioned in the last post, we were up in Vermont last weekend.  There wasn't a ton of snow, but there was enough that we were able to try out our new snow shoes.  It was, quite simply, awesome.

We got there late on Friday night so it was already dark.  So, rather than be put down by the lack of sun (and moon--it was really dark), we strapped on our headlamps and headed out.

It was spectacular.  The snow glistened in the light of our lamps as we walked along through the fresh, clean snow.  Jonah stayed much closer than usual since the snow did slow him down somewhat, but he was still able to explore and sniff, bound and run.  About half an hour was plenty for us and we were rather cold, so we headed back and went to bed.

On Saturday Dave and I went out without Jonah and had a great time.  We were out for 2 hours or so and covered a lot of ground.  Great fun, but we missed the puppy.

Then the three of us went back out Saturday night and went even farther.  We ended by the side of a stream.  It was frozen over, but the water was still running underneath.  We turned off the lights and just stood there listening.  The stars were as bright as could be and the sound of the stream was so soothing.  What a good life.

Now if only it would snow at home so we could use the snowshoes more!
