Nordic Skiers

We've been trying to go cross country skiing ALL WINTER, but something always got in the way. I had gone once before in high school with the young women in my stake and loved it. Since then I've been dying to go again.

Neither one of us has been skiing or snowboarding this year, so it was soooo nice to do something outside. We looked completely out of place though. Us in our baggy gear while everyone else was in tight spandex :) That's okay, we did our thing and loved it. It takes a little bit to get used to the skis, which made for a lot of laughs because we both fell repeatedly.

Being up in the mountains, away from everything, makes you feel good.  It re-centers you. Trevor, wouldn't you say that it made you feel "one with mother nature"? His favorite saying (not really). I especially love the mountains when there's snow. The snow absorbs every single sound and makes it all so quite and peaceful. There's no noise and all you can do is enjoy the beauty that is in nature.

We plan on going back again soon.
