Our Yurt Trip

As promised, more about my time in the snow.

We flew to Boise, met up with my brother-in law & sister-in-law, drove for a while on twisty-turny mountain roads, ended up at trail head, hiked to a yurt--stayed for 2 nights.  We lit the wood stove, melted snow for water, cooked on the camp stove, did some hard core sledding, walked in the snow, played lots of games, ate more good food, drank red wine out of a box, laughed a lot.  What a good, good time.

We skied in 3 miles.  It was so quiet & peaceful

 And eventually came to this awesome yurt...tucked away all by itself




The four of us--my husband & me with my sister-in-law & brother-in-law

We did some serious sledding--it was such a blast!  I haven't laughed that much in a very long time


My sister-in-law catching some butt is seriously still sore


Cozy inside

So rejuvenating.

  4. Nige's word = my sentiment exactly... AMAZING! Wow Julia, you did some hard core living.

    I love that you gave this laughter and joy and adventure to yourself. The 'Us' picture and the one word that accompanied it melted my heart.
