This is the view of our "picnic" site before all the cars showed up to tamp down the snow. Brian, Lee's nephew, was driving his mom's truck and broke the trail. We were the car behind him, but we let the 4-wheel drives go past us to mush all the snow down.
From this point, everyone parked as safely as possible, the kids used the slope on the right to sled, and the fire was built so we could stay warm.
We just walked into the forest from this point as well to hunt for our trees.
We managed to stay dry, and had snow come down a bit when we were starting to pack up again. There were patches of sunshine, but it was overcast for most of the day.
I thought Lexie's dog had it the best, hiding in Lexie's coat. I suppose it kept Lexie warm too. That's Lee's sister, Donna, on the right of Lexie.
Connor enjoyed himself so much, I think we're going to have to go up to the mountains over the holidays so he can get more of a snow fix in. I think we have a sled-type thing somewhere...
