The road less traveled
Literally. Yesterday we took a drive just to get out of the house and see some surrounding area. This road ran up a canyon, along a pretty little flowing creek (there are lots of those around here and I'm slowly learning the names)
After about 5 or 6 miles (which takes awhile when you have to drive like 20 mph) we found the reason why. What appeared to be a big house or some kind of business (logging?) with pick ups parked everywhere. Snowmobilers! Even though the road kept going on, that is where the plowing stopped, so we turned around and drove back home to have some lunch. Along the way was a National Park campground that we decided to come back in the summer and have a picnic (probably during the week when it will be less crowded with summer people).
This morning it is prettily snowing and looks like we are in for a little snow the next several days. Of course just when all the streets became clear and dry, finally.
