Winter fun...

Early in the morning on the weekend... into the canyon and up to the mountains. Snowmobiles in tow. It was a bit too cold as the sun barely was trying to wake up.
We rode in beautiful mountain meadows and thru narrow roads in the trees.
We rode on a path that was steep down one side and steep up the other. I didn't blink.
And we were on top of the world.

Gee thanks! I had to go dust off my ski clothes. There is just nothing that compares to having that first cup of coffee and watching the sun come up over the mountains. Or riding the motorcyle up the canyon on a clear winter day for a burger and a beer.

Wow, winter wonderland! I envy your weather and the mountains nearby....

Over here in Europe, we are "suffering" from a too warmish January.... with temperatures around 10 °C/50 °F, you may think it's the beginning of spring instead of winter, cold and lots of snow...

Have lots of fun!

Looks like a lot of snowy fun. You should have even more of the white stuff to play in now, or soon!

Just left Giggles BC blog, and her fotoz of winter snows in Canada only to come to these beautiful if not chilly willy scenes. Is this up towards the Tetons?

This is just a short drive from where I live. The canyon shown is Ogden Canyon and the mountain area is called Monte Cristo. When you look at the last picture and see the large mountains to the West, Ogden is smack dab on the other side of those.
