Finding Winter

Oh my mmmmmmmm! After a clear drive to the Kirkwood area late Friday afternoon, we woke up Saturday morning to big snows! I had been dreaming about this all summer! Finally, ahhhh.
It was a cold and wintery day on Saturday.
Snow storm? No worries! I'm an all weather gal.
Saturday's storm delivered many more inches of snow and we woke up Sunday morning to blue skies and more of the fluffy white stuff.
It was an amazing day. Quite a big start for winter in this section of our Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. I was thrilled!Lots and lots of playing the 'find it' game and practicing long line powder recalls with mom.
Taking a few seconds break time.... And, off I go....can you find me? You still there?
Face-plant swimmin'. Wootwoot! A lot of work yet, so much fun. The weekend went by too fast....and soon we were headed home...
A slow drive down the very slippery mountain roads.
Will definitely be resting up, ready for another visit to the mountains!
Have a nice week friends :)

  14. Wow, you got all the snow there! It looks amazing. The even more amazing thing is that you still have the orange ball from last snow season! You're good at NOT losing things!

    I hear that a la nina year means that you'll get tons of snow and so will our western mountains. But, on the front range, where I live, it'll be pretty dry. Bummer, don't you think?

    I hope your parents had fun skiing!

  15. Oh I do so love snow pictures!!!! Especially when it's someone else's snow!! :-)

  16. You almost looked like Santa!!!! What beautiful pictures!!! HUgs Joey and Kealani

  17. All white and beautiful!
    Sure you enjoyed it a lot!
    Kisses and hugs

  18. So jealous!...that snow is just what I need. My nose needs some 'divin' into and 'snorting through' to find hidden treasures in those snowbanks. This was a great post!

  19. Sigh. We are still waiting on winter to find us.

  20. Snow snow jealous of you!!! There is nothing better than a snow-covered golden!

    Sam & June

  21. WOW, hat tip to the photographer !!! The heelers are wondering if dag drool freezes on the ball !?!?! and then does the drool freeze dry over the evening !?!?
