Backpack...had my new boots and snowshoes...yiippppeeee!!!!!
When we first got to the snowcat...there was no snow...I am looking around...hay Maywell where is the snow...he just nodded at me and smiled. I was joking of course...but still he just nodded and smiled!
But we started up the snowcat and away we went...and not more than a mile up the road...yippeee!!! snow.
By the time we got up to mile 11 (the logging roads are still im miles not kilometer3s)...well the snow was taller than me:)
We had a blast...we trekked...some skiied back to mile 3 where the cars were parked...some came back up and skiied back down again. The sun was warm and I could smell some of the sap from the tree...I even got a sunburn (No...no picture of me with my sunburn) (grin)....we sat in the middle of the forest had lunch..trekked back down to the snowcat...and then sadly came home.
A few of them are going out again this Easter weekend (I can't go I have to work waagghhhhhh....) But I will go the following weekend!!!!
There is still about 10 feet of snow...so hopefully it will be around another month or so...then when it all melts the flowers come out...and spring will begin up on the mountains!!!!
Was an awesome day!!!!!!!!!!!
