January Sledding

This January has brought decent snow to the metro area for the first time in a few years, which gave us the chance to go sledding in the open space near the house this weekend. The snow in the sun was already pretty crunchy, but was great for sledding. There were a few powdery spots that weren’t quite as productive, but made for great “facewashes” as you’ll see below. We made it out several times, and finally dragged the boys off the hill just before dark. Hopefully this foretells of a nice wet winter.

Spring Sledding

Another annual event in Colorado is the late spring blizzard. We got about a foot of heavy, wet snow from Friday night through Saturday, crushing tree branches and the newly bloomed flowers. The bright side was that it made for some great sledding. The slopes in the open space behind the house were well covered and very slick. As you can see, it was a beautiful day to be outside.
