Snow??


What a beautiful day it was yesterday. I looked at the thermometer outside and it registered 86 degrees, ahh perfect for a trip up to the canyon. I grabbed the camera, everyone put their sandals on and headed out the door. "How 'bout silver lake?" I suggested to Cache. "There is probablly a little snow in shaded spots, but I bet we could walk around the board walk". Up the canyon we headed, and Up we headed some more, and up, up, up, up. "I forgot how high up Silver Lake is" I thought aloud. As we pulled into the parking lot of Brighton ski resort we looked to the sides of the road, there is about 6 feet of snow on both sides. DUH-I guess it is only May and the snow at the top of the canyon has just barely started to melt. Oh, well how often do you get to play in the snow and walk on a frozen lake in flip flops and shorts? Although there was a TON of snow it was still 75 degrees and beautiful. I love this weather.

I can't wait for the snow to really be gone. Going up the canyons is so much fun. Ben is dying to go camping.

I don't think I would have thought of the snow either. Makes for a good story though.
