Skiing is fun!

A couple of weeks ago we dug out the cross-country skis and piled in the truck with my cousin and the dogs for a quick Saturday afternoon ski trip. We went to a city open space about 20 minutes from our house and saw only one other human.

It was really beautiful, with the frost outlining all the Ponderosa needles and the sunset reflecting through the low clouds.

The dogs had a great time, although the fur between Klaus’s pads always builds up with snow and hurts his feet after a while. We’re THAT close to becoming those people who put booties on their dog. I can’t imagine they’d actually stay on though. Maybe we’ll try trimming the fur there before we go again. Here they are trying their best to destroy some rodent and digging up the whole meadow in the process…

My snowboarding husband is getting more and more comfortable on skis. Soon we’ll have him good enough to go for a multi-day hut trip. And then we’ll just have to wait for enough vacation to do it!
