Mid-week Snowshoe Trip

A freebie day mid-week when one is hoping to acquire a full time job=soak up what you on limited sleep, the ladies and I headed back up to the mountain to get in some outdoor fun! We headed back to the same spot as the first time we went with T.

Halfway along the trail--debating heading up the ridgeline...and then I saw this guy and his dog had made it over....true to form I thought "well, if he can do it, then so can I...."

...except I couldn't figure out an easy way to get down on this embankment to get over o the you see that straight line down embedded in the snow? Yup, I purposely slid down that sucker on my butt and laughed the whole way. :)

The dogs and I starting to head up the ridgeline from the river bank.

Roxi rolling around in the snow.

The dogs investigating a rocky section. Can you see those two itty bitty trees straight up on the left? That was my destination point....

Dogs playing....itty bitty trees still behind them.

At our destination, Anna's glamour shot with Mt Hood in the background.

Heading back down. The parking lot is beyond that row of trees jutting in from the right toward the river.

Did I mention it was warm and gorgeous? Probably even tanned my face!

Another GREAT Snowshoeing DAY!

God and I had a lil chat as I ate a snack on an embankment near the parking lot. Heading back the dogs slept and I sang songs from the radio at the top of my lungs. Now with dog bones and leg massages, I think they've had a pretty good day! :) I'm tired and headed out to Granny's, but it feels like it's been an incredibly good day!
Updated: And Granny was in a chipper mood herself---has started joining the exercise classes and has started making some friends--was good to see her back to her spunky, smiley self :)


  1. Sounds like a great time! Having a day off in the middle of the week is always a nice thing in my book :-)

  2. Wow, those photos are so beautiful! And that is nice that the weather was so nice for you!

    I am glad your grandma is doing well and is adjusting to her new home!
