The only thing better than being in the mountains is being in the mountains with my family.
This trip has been great. We woke up this morning 2 minutes after a pair of deer left the yard, so that was a little disappointing. Just before lunch though, they came back with friends! Six of em less than 25 yards from the front of the camp. Needless to say Delilah was pretty ecstatic.
D and I spent a bit of time this morning playing in the snow. Snow angels, snow balls, falling down, running around, chasing the dogs with piles of snow, all good fun. It was pretty nice to come inside to the stoked up fire and warm up, a lot different than the little camp with just the gas stove.
After naps we headed to Saranac Lake for the end of the carnival fireworks and to check out the ice palace. The plan was to check it out, grab a bite to eat and then watch the fireworks. However; it was way too cold to stay much longer so we headed back to camp with about an hour and a half until the fireworks display. Next time we’ll probably come after dinner so we’re there just before the slideshow/fireworks.
