We completed our second week and second hike of our #52hikechallenge2017 on Saturday. We chose an easy jaunt for this week as we had a rather busy weekend with the baptism of a friend's child and a lot of snow in the forecast (it's still coming down now)
Oh, those Colorado clouds. I love them.
As we neared home, Ava insisted that she needed to stop and take a break. This is how one takes breaks, apparently.
Next, a lovely picture from Chris' phone:
And now a couple pictures of that snow, I was telling you we are getting today. Pictures don't do it's loveliness justice. There are few things in the world as lovely as freshly fallen(or falling) snow.
We still have our live tree up. We took all the decorations down and the ornaments off last weekend, but the lovely fir tree still stands proudly in our front room, looking as fresh and lovely as ever. And the smell! Oh, I love the smell of pine. Anyway, Chris snapped this lovely shot of it close-up a few days ago...
Pines and snow. A winter wonderland indeed.
