the first snowshoe trip

The first trip of the season is always fantastic (last year) and 60 cm of new snow over Christmas day didn’t hurt either. We went up to Grouse Mountain with Jason, arriving right when the mountain opened and running around like little kids for the next few hours.

We have the pictures of Jason falling, but he has all the ones of us looking like idiots. I have a sinking feeling that there might be a pic of me waving my arms in the air like a lunatic (it’s for balance, really, I promise it is!) as I tumbled down the hill.

How much better than playing in snowdrifts and sliding down hills can life get? I’d love to go back up tomorrow morning, but I suspect we’ll all be limping around, we covered about 600-800 m of elevation gain today and none of us are used to the exercise. Maybe by Tuesday though…

p.s. Cory did the turkey last night and it was fabulous. I made the side dishes and port wine gravy and Tim brought pie. Relaxed, we then proceeded to stuff ourselves with three meals worth of food in one sitting. There’s a reason we had to go get exercise this morning…

    That’s looks great! We’re mid-storm right now here too, but it doesn’t look quite as fluffy and inviting.
