“I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright.” -Henry David Thoreau
We love the great outdoors! Here we will share our outdoor adventures and tools that help us get the most out of getting outside.
The Importance of National Parks
May 04, 2017
The National Parks are as American as apple pie. Only joking, apple pie was invented in England in 1381. No, but seriously, the National Parks are an integral part of the American identity, on par even with military budgets.
This past holiday weekend, Northern New Mexico got hit with another snow storm! We took advantage of the new snow on Sunday, and headed up to Sun Mountain for a winter wonderland hike. It snowed the entire time we hiked, adding to the enchanted feeling of the winter scene and forest.
Our first hike after the New Year was a snow hike! After a warm and dry November, we are finally getting snow here in New Mexico. Sunday was a beautiful sunny, bluebird day here in Santa Fe, so we headed up to our old faithful, Atalaya Mountain, to test our snow legs.
This past weekend we finally went skiing for the first time this season!!! We have been meaning to go, but wanted to wait for good snow conditions. After Friday’s storm, this was the perfect weekend to hit the slopes! Our little Frenchie Rosie gave us the stank eye for not taking her with us, but I think she understands! Though we had to bribe her with a promise to take her hiking the next day.
