Not skiing

Much to everyone's dismay, I made the family take a day off of skiing and go on a snowshoe adventure.  

The entire day felt like we were on a mini-vacation and was exactly what all of us needed.

We headed up to Galena which is about 25 miles North of our house.  BEAUTIFUL location!

 Down in the valley, there was a half frozen river surrounded by untouched snow.  Very serene.

 After our 2 mile, 2 hour excursion (we are slow!), it was to the lodge for some yummy hot cocoa with lots of whipped cream.
