Still Spending Time in the Mountains

One of the best things about where we live is how close we are to outdoor activities. It only takes us about half an hour to be in the mountains. In the winter, that means we are close to snowmobiling. In the summer, that means we are close to hiking and fishing.

One of our favorite spots to go to is the Snowys. There’s a reason they are called that, and it’s because they usually have snow on them year round. When we headed up this weekend, that was definitely the case.

It’s amazing how different the mountains look during the different seasons. When snow covers the landscape, it’s a completely different world from when everything is in bloom. During either time, however, it’s still a wonderfully magical place to be.

We had the opportunity to head up this weekend for a little fishing. A lot of other people had the same idea, so we wanted to go somewhere secluded. We found that spot and had to hike in. Let me tell you something: I am not in hiking shape. It doesn’t help that we were at, like, 10,000 feet either.

The boys only caught one fish, and there were troubles with the fishing line breaking, but we had an awesome time in a beautiful area. We took the dogs with us, and they had a blast running around and swimming. If there was a downside, it was that the snow was melting—a lot!—and everything was muddy. The dogs were coated when we got home and needed baths.

As a parent, we spend most of our time fixing broken rods.

Yes, that white stuff in the background is snow.

These two sweeties had a blast swimming and getting muddy!


What fun things have you been doing this summer?
