Another great New Year's for the books!
After partying late with the final Harry Potter movie and some chocolate fondue, my crew bundled up, loaded up, and headed for a day of cross-country skiing at the Izaak Walton Inn, about an hour from our place in Kalispell.
We got through the circus of matching growing kids with gear unearthed from storage to make our first ski trip of the year. The snow has been late in coming, leaving us to wonder if we need to do the naked bonfire snow dance soon. We really want to get out more, a bit closer to home.
We huffed up hills and zipped down, mostly staying upright. Then we were off for the comfort of hot chocolate and the inn. A most welcome surprise was running into acquaintances and feeling like we were meeting old friends.
Welcome, 2012. So happy to greet you in wonder.
My New Year's post is here, if you missed it.
