Christmas Day Sledding

Christmas Day brought fog and a thin covering of snow in the river valley.

But further up in the mountains, the sun was peeking through and there was plenty of sledding snow.

It was a perfect calm thirty-degree day, warm, but cold enough for good sledding snow.  Here's my nephew Ethan catching some air.

Everyone got in on the sledding fun. 

There was racing, crashing and even some white-washing.

When everyone was tired, the sleds were abandoned,

and the kids joined Grandpa and Grandma at the fire for some hot chocolate and roasted cheese wieners.

I hiked in the snow

And noticed these beautiful Kinnikinnick berries peeking through the snow under the pine trees.

It was a day to remember.
