Yesterday we went snowshoeing up in East Canyon. We wanted to go into Big Cottonwood, but decided we needed to stick to the less steep slopes because of super high avalanche danger. It was awesome though because we scared up a grouse only three feet from me, saw some deer, tons of animal tracks and this guy! A porcupine in a tree. He didn't even move.
Here is Drew getting some some wicked snowshoe action. Ha ha.
Two days ago we went cross country skiing at Bonneville Golf Course here close to home. Several inches of fresh powder and sunny skies made my tree-hugging spirit come out.
