Hello Again…

The groundhog must have heard me talking, and since he and Mother Nature area obviously good friends, he arranged for a change in the weather. After two of the most beautiful days EVER, we woke up Monday morning to this…

Wait... What?!

Wait… What?!

One of the things I love most about this area is that when it snows it is absolutely beautiful, but that snow does not feel the need to stick around for months. By the afternoon, the sun was shining, making yet another amazing day.

So while I did enjoy the snow, I would still like to issue an official apology to the groundhog. You were right. It is, in fact, still winter after all…

We woke this morning to another beautiful round of snow. Instead of just wandering around the Visitor Center like I did the last time it snowed, I decided to venture out onto the Main Loop Trail. This is a beautiful trail when it is dry, so under snow it was downright amazing. Felt like a new place entirely, even though I have lost track of how many times I have walked it. The park is closed today so I had the entire trail to myself, which was definitely a first.

It snowed until about 9:30 this morning. The sun has tried coming out a few times, but the clouds still seem to be winning at this point. It is brighter than it was earlier, though, so I think the sun may win the battle yet.

Snow! We woke up this morning to an absolutely beautiful day. It snowed during the night, giving us a few fresh inches, and today the sun was absolutely gorgeous. The combination made for an amazing winter day. It was especially nice that the kids did not have school and the park was closed, so we were free to enjoy the snow all day!
