Let There Be Snow
Why the photo of Winter? Well where we are headed there will be snow. I'm hoping for lots of snow. From the forecast and from what the innkeeper said yesterday there is about 13 feet of snow covering one highway that should actually be open this time of year. I'm excited.
I've called the housesitter up and she's agreed to be here at the appointed time. We are bugging out tomorrow morning early. I've got my hiking boots ready and warm weather gear along with some heavier clothing items. I'm set. J's set because I packed for him. I'll just have to remind him to grab a coat tomorrow.
Playing in the snow in the Northern Hemisphere in July is awesome. I just wonder how close we'll actually get to the snow. I have to admit finding out that one highway that we had planned to travel is closed does put a bit of a damper on our sight seeing but I'm still excited. Two volcanos and snow. The thrill of the unknown. Could this be the day that they decide to shake awake and puff out some plumes of smoke? Or will I just see snow filled craters? Either way I'm going to get some good photos or so I hope.
I'm excited. Did I say that already? Yes, I did.
