a sledding we will go

On Christmas Eve, we went up to Hyalite Reservoir to go sledding.  We had so much fun. Not that we are hermits, but one of the things we love about Montana is the population density and lack thereof.  Not a lot of competition for resources.  On many occasions, we've found ourselves thinking "If we were somewhere else, this place would be packed."

We had the entire hill to ourselves, not that we were in danger of running into other people in National Forest, but still. We kept going and going until we ran ourselves ragged. George had so much fun.


We kept Ed bundled tight, while Ashley wore my coat, hoisted by the baby bjorn.  Eventually he got tired of our shenanigans and spent the rest of the morning snoozing in the car.


Here's a good shot of Ashley and the boys getting ready for another run. Even though the sun wasn't out all the way, there was no wind and the temperature was perfect.  We all over-heated.  We were much better repaired for the snow this time, compared to last time when we got our tree.


I experimented with the automatic timer - taking multiple shots. I wanted to get us in action, so... scroll down through the next few pictures of us enjoying the slopes.














A successful day in the books. We had such a fun time that we're planning on going up again this Saturday.  Anyone is welcome to join us, just as long as you are serious about having fun.
