Shoveling. All the shoveling.
This is a typical scene from our driveway… and this photo was taken only late-December! The town gets an average of 220 inches of snow each year, but with views like this and standing among a tranquil forest of snow-covered pines, it’s hard not to love. (Plus the benefit of a built-in arm workout every week haha.) I honestly never thought I’d love winter as much as I do here… such weird, confusing feelings 😉
We’ve had many animal sightings out in the wild lately (moose, bison, fox, coyote, bald eagle, marmots, big horn sheep, etc.) but we also love spending time at the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center. Unlike a zoo, it’s a not-for-profit wildlife park and educational facility that takes in animals that, for various reasons, are unable to return to the wild (wolves, bears, and an assortment of birds-of-prey). They take amazing care of these beautiful creatures and I love supporting a place like this. If you’re ever in the Yellowstone area, I recommend checking it out!
Back in December, we got to spend a week and a half in the bright desert sunshine during the holidays. I came across this big fella on a hike one day in Catalina State Park near Tucson, AZ. (Fun fact: saguaros don’t grow their first side arm until they’re 75-100 years old!)
I hope this finds you well and wishing you all a happy, healthy March! Spring is near!!
